Deploying a WAR to virgo-tomcat server

I have been stuck for the last couple of days deploying a standard WAR to Virgo-tomcat server (version 3.0.2). The standard WAR file exported from eclipse works perfectly fine on tomcat, but not when deploying to Virgo-tomcat. I have read the users-guide and the programmers guide, and as far as I'm aware - it should be a case of deploying the WAR to the VIRGO_HOME/pickup directory (or alternatively using the application manager). I have tried both methods, yet nothing works.

Here are the results from the logs.

Ok, so after testing a couple of test applications, I managed to get some sample WARs to run on Virgo without any modification.

To fix the problem at hand, I added the following line to the MANIFEST.MF file of my web app.

Import-Package: org.springframework.web.context
