Please help me!!!

It would be helpful if you can provide step-by-step instructions for someone else to reproduce this error.

What did you do to get to this point where the error appeared? Thanks!

We Have fixed the error. The problem was in web.xml inside m2p-wtp in target. The xml was empty. The code was not copied while building the source code. Copying the code into web.xml solved our problem. We are able to run using tomcat from eclipse.
