please post the server log file or application log file where we can see the startup error. Jetty isn't a real server so problems can occur on tomcat while it work on jetty.

as chillworld pointed out, you need to look at your tomcat logs (catalina.out and localhost log) You probably have your project configured wrong. If it helps look at my web project (war) config stuff here https://github.com/rickcr/mybatis-spring-zk-multimodule (look at the web module)

Hello aliabbas,

For starters please find an interesting article regarding deployment of maven based war file to tomcat:


Furthermore please find below a similar post:


Finally if the problem still exists, please upload the error stack trace, and the configuration files.

Best Regards,

That article is concerning using the Tomcat plugin to deploy from maven. The OP just mentioned that he "deployed" to maven. I'm guessing he means a manual deploy. Difficult to tell.
