How to solve java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.Springframework.Web.Context.ContextLoaderListener.

Firstly we must know root cause :
This error because using Spring MVC framework in Java Web application and configured org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener as a listener in your deployment descriptor also known as web.xml, but the JAR which contains this class is not available in web application’s classpath. This jar appears in spring-web.jar, if you use maven as build tool so make sure that spring-web dependency exist in pom file.


Second, right click web project -> Select “Deployment Assembly” -> Click the “Add..” button on the right -> Select “Java Build Path Entries” from the menu of Directive Type and click “Next” -> Select “Maven Dependencies” from the Java Build Path Entries menu -> Click finish.

Please see picture below.

Thank you.
