I have a Problem at starting my Spring Web MVC Application on Tomcat8. At startup I get the following Error at loading the context:

2015-10-14 20:31:38 INFO  ClassPathBeanDefinitionScanner:222 - JSR-250 'javax.annotation.ManagedBean' found and supported for component scanning

So far I've figured out that there has to be a problem with the component-scan in my MVC config. When the component-scan is commented out, the server starts without error (but the application needs it...).

Here's my MVC config:

Does anyone know what the problem could be?

My spring version is 3.2.0.RELEASE, Hibernate Version is: 4.1.0.Final.

Are you forced to use Spring framework? Perhaps you may want to Try SpringBoot. It is a micro-framework based on Spring, but since it is an opinionated framework it is very easy to setup. For instance, it does not use xml config files. If you are using Maven you just need to create a new Maven project and add Springboot to your pom file:

http://projects.spring.io/spring-boot/

How are you setting the versions for spring and hibernate in your pom.xml file? All other dependencies have versions set explicitly.

I'm missing something like:

<properties>    
    <hibernate.version>4.1.0.RELEASE</hibernate.version>
    <spring.version>3.2.0.Final</spring.version>
</properties>

If you're using eclipse, look in the "folder" Maven Dependencies that those libraries actually are added to your project, I have seen sometimes that if the versions are missing, none is added

I found the error... and I'm ashamed that I didn't found it out before I was writing the question. I checked the production server and saw that the Tomcat runs on Java 7. So when I start my local Tomcat with Java 7 it works.

Thanks for your help!
