tip

This means you're missing a class that Java needs for this program. Check if you're not missing the jsr305-1.3.7.jar from your classpath, it's the jar that contains the class javax.annotation.Nullable.

You have a different solution? A short tip here would help you and many other users who saw this issue last week.

  • Spring loaded appears to occasionally cause more eagar class loading then an application without spring loaded running. One specific situation where I've run into this problem is with ehcache. Ehcache has an optional dependency on JTA. I've provided a testcase that does a simple spring based bootstrap of ehcache. If I run the provided test project without spring loaded running it starts up fine. I am able to add entries to the cache without problem. (Hit the HomeController) If I run with spring loaded enabled then on startup I get the following error. If I add JTA as a dependency on my project then everything works fine again. org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'cacheManager' defined in ServletContext resource [/WEB-INF/spring/root-context.xml]: Invocation of init method failed;
