The following exception is encountered, I am sure all the jar files including zk.jar are under Tomcat 5.5\shared\lib. I am not sure why it complains com.potix.zk.ui.http.HttpSessionListener
class not found. Rebooted the pc.
any idea?

org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext listenerStart

Ok this has to do with eclipse's dev environment. seems like copying all the jars into tomcat/shared/lib is not enough, I needed to copy the jars into WEB-INF/lib as well. I only need to do this if I use eclipse to deploy to tomcat 5.5.
