Netbeans 6.0, using galssfish-v2, GWT plugin providing GWT framework.
When I try to run the project after successfully creating the project, I get this error reported in server log:

[#|2008-02-11T10:31:28.915-0600|INFO|sun-appserver9.1|org.apache.catalina.loader.WebappClassLoader|_ThreadID=10;_ThreadName=main;|validateJarFile(/root/tmp/GWTinAction/HelloGWT/build/web/WEB-INF/lib/gwt-dev-linux.jar) - jar not loaded. See Servlet Spec 2.3, section 9.7.2. Offending class: javax/servlet/Servlet.class|#]

... with the result the application does not run, although the buld process report success ... I get just a blank frame in the browser where the application should be saying "hello".

The jar in question is in WEB-INF/lib and jar utility can successfully list out the contects of the jar. What is this reference to the Servlet Spec? BTW, this application woeks okay with Tomcat.

I have found that it works fine if I pre-start the glassfish server ... that is, if I do not rely on NetBeans successfully starting the server all goes well.

I do not have this problem with tomcat.

Thank you. For my part I have solved my problem.
