When I try and start my app I get this error. I have verified that JarScanner exists in the CATALINA_HOME directory so I dont know why it cant find it. Is there anything that could lead to this issue starting my app? I noticed that earlier in the same log i find this:

[Loaded org.apache.tomcat.JarScanner from file:/usr/local/apache-tomcat-7.0.30/lib/tomcat-api.jar]

Here is the actual error further down:

Make sure tomcat-util.jar is present under Tomcat's lib directory.

It is in the CATALINA_HOME/lib. –  CodesLikeA_Mokey Oct 8 '12 at 21:18
