Peter is right, you can ignore the info line. You probably have a permission issue. How did you install and start Tomcat? What OS are you using?

Hmm, I don't know what's wrong in this case. Check your logs further back for a line that starts with ERROR, the INFO line might not be too much to worry about.

When you built the DSpace 4 code, I would try mvn -U clean package.
Also, double check that your tomcat/dspace user is the owner of all the files.

I have upgraded the dspace from 3.1 to 4.2 but when I try to access XMLUI webapp I get a 404. Checking the Tomcat manager shows that xmlui webapp is not running but the rest are, that is oai and solr. When I try to start the webapp in Tomcat manager I get a FAIL error (FAIL - Application at contect path /xmlui could not be started).

The dspace logs to not show any errors but the catalina out shows the following...

Aug 29, 2014 2:16:01 PM org.apache.catalina.loader.WebappClassLoader validateJarFile
INFO: validateJarFile(/usr/local/dspace/webapps/xmlui/WEB-INF/lib/jsp-api-2.1.jar) - jar not loaded. See Servlet Spec 3.0, section 10.7.2. Offending class: javax/el/Expression.class

Aug 29, 2014 2:16:12 PM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext startInternal
SEVERE: Context [/xmlui] startup failed due to previous errors

The platform I am using has: -
OS: Debian Wheezy
Java: 1.7.0_65 (OpenJDK)
Tomcat: 7.0.54
Maven: 3.2.1

Has anyone encountered this problem or does anyone know a solution or where I am going wrong?
