Spring-MVC FileNotFoundException: dispatcher-servlet.xml


Maven
Hi there,

Here I’m again back to my things and found one more issue, trying to create my Maven project with Spring.

Today I realize that my dispatcher-servlet.xml was in a wrong directory and was causing this error:


HTTP ERROR 500

Problem accessing /future/. Reason:

IOException parsing XML document from ServletContext resource [/WEB-INF/dispatcher-servlet.xml]; nested exception is java.io.FileNotFoundException: Could not open ServletContext resource [/WEB-INF/dispatcher-servlet.xml]
Caused by:

And the error was in the directory that I put my dispatcher-servlet.xml, so I’ll try to explain thinking that “A picture is worth a thousand words”
WRONG DIRECTORY:

CORRECT DIRECTORY:

Hope this tip helps!
