SEVERE: Error listenerStart

Probably one of Tomcat 6’s least helpful error messages is the infamous “SEVERE: Error listenerStart”.

It turns out to be relatively easy to get more information, as Venkatt Guhesan describes in Tomcat 6+: Infamous “SEVERE: Error listenerStart” message – How-To debug this error?

So to get to the debugging details create a “” file under your”/WEB-INF/classes” folder of your WAR and you’re all set.

Here’s Venkatt’s suggestion for the contents of the file:

org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].level = INFO
org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].handlers = java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler

From here, you should be able to see what’s really causing the problem.
