building automation software java issue
hello i'm sure i'm posting in the wrong area because this says advanced java and i am am just a beginner. i do not write java but i write building automation programs for a school division and have been tasked with making the software run on linux . needless to say the system uses java all the way around and i have successfully got this installed on ubuntu 8.1 all but the error that i recieve when launching the webserver for the system i recieve an error that i have attached. again i am sorry if this does not pertain to the advanced pros but all my support personel are scratching there heads on this one. PLEASE HELP !!
