SEVERE: Error reading tld listeners java.lang.NullPointerException

SEVERE: Error reading tld listeners java.lang.NullPointerException, the error appears to come from log4j.

I came across this error when reloading a context in Tomcat 5.5.23.

The solution appeared to be to remove commons-logging from WEB-INF/lib of my web app. I’d only added it because Jakarta’s HttpClient insisted on it.

Once again, when in doubt, blame commons-logging.

    Please check whether your listeners is started properly or not.
    Use ps -ef | grep lsnrctl
    if it is not started, then follow below procedure to start the listener

    Procedure
    1. Go to $ORACLE_HOME/bin> ./lsnrctl
    2. $ORACLE_HOME/bin> start

    Hope this helps.
