Context initialization failed: org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name ’tilesConfigurer’ defined in ServletContext resource


Below is the exception that I have received when I am integrating the tiles 3.0 framework with Spring 4.0 web mvc application. Using the solution below I have rectified the issue my self. Hope this is useful to all.

Solution:

step 1: Check the spring tiles configuration: DTD should match with the version of jars added into application

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″ ?>
<!DOCTYPE tiles-definitions PUBLIC
-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Tiles Configuration 3.0//EN”
http://tiles.apache.org/dtds/tiles-config_3_0.dtd”&gt;

<tiles-definitions>
<definition name=”base.definition” template=”/jsp/layout.jsp”>
<put-attribute name=”title” value=”” />
<put-attribute name=”header” value=”/jsp/header.jsp” />
<put-attribute name=”menu” value=”/jsp/menu.jsp” />
<put-attribute name=”body” value=”” />
<put-attribute name=”footer” value=”/jsp/footer.jsp” />
</definition>

<definition name=”contact” extends=”base.definition”>
<put-attribute name=”title”
value=”Sample Spring MVC With Tiles Appliacation” />
<put-attribute name=”body” value=”/jsp/contact.jsp” />
</definition>

</tiles-definitions>

Step 2: Check the spring configuration files: DTD should match to the jars added into application

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
<beans xmlns=”http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans&#8221;
xmlns:xsi=”http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance&#8221; xmlns:mvc=”http://www.springframework.org/schema/mvc&#8221;
xmlns:context=”http://www.springframework.org/schema/context&#8221;
xsi:schemaLocation=”
http://www.springframework.org/schema/mvc http://www.springframework.org/schema/mvc/spring-mvc-4.0.xsd
http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans-4.0.xsd
http://www.springframework.org/schema/context http://www.springframework.org/schema/context/spring-context-4.0.xsd“>

<context:component-scan base-package=”in.javatutorials.spring.controller” />
<mvc:annotation-driven />
<bean id=”viewResolver” class=”org.springframework.web.servlet.view.UrlBasedViewResolver“>
<property name=”viewClass” value=”org.springframework.web.servlet.view.tiles3.TilesView“/>
</bean>

<bean id=”tilesConfigurer” class=“org.springframework.web.servlet.view.tiles3.TilesConfigurer“>
<property name=”definitions”>
<list>
<value>/config/tiles.xml</value>
</list>
</property>
</bean>

</beans>

Step 3: Check the jar versions with the above DTD versions:

Spring4 and Tiles 3 Integration Jars
