unable to complete the scan for annotations for web application app due to a ¬†using -'java,eclipse,spring,maven,spring-mvc'
I am developing a Spring MVC application using STS (eclipse plugin) and maven.
For creating the project, I followed the STS wizard for a new "Spring MVC project". Afterwards, I added some dependencies to other projects and libraries.
However, when I am now trying to deploy the project to the integrated vFabric server of STS, I sometimes get an exception:
SEVERE: ContainerBase.addChild: start:
org.apache.catalina.LifecycleException: Failed to start component [StandardEngine[Catalina].StandardHost[localhost].StandardContext[/wsa]]
Caused by: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Unable to complete the scan for annotations for web application [/app] due to a StackOverflowError. Possible root causes include a too low setting for -Xss and illegal cyclic inheritance dependencies. The class hierarchy being processed was [org.bouncycastle.asn1.ASN1EncodableVector->org.bouncycastle.asn1.DEREncodableVector->org.bouncycastle.asn1.ASN1EncodableVector]
When issuing a "maven clean", followed by a "maven install" and a restart of the server, the exception sometimes doesn't get thrown and the application works fine. Yet, most of the times, it doesn't work.
I guess there is no need to scan the bouncycastle dependencies for annotations.
Can I somehow disable this scanning for some jars?
I already tried adding metadata-complete="true" to my web.xml and increasing the stack size with no result.
What can I do to fix this?
