Getting following error when deploying to Tomcat container. Only thing which I have changed is that I have removed default ROOT.war in webapps, renamed by dxawebapp to ROOT.war as I wanted the conext root not to be the WAR name

type Exception report

message java.lang.LinkageError: loader constraint violation: when resolving method "org.apache.jasper.runtime.InstanceManagerFactory.getInstanceManager(Ljavax/servlet/ServletConfig;)Lorg/apache/tomcat/InstanceManager;" the class loader (instance of org/apache/jasper/servlet/JasperLoader) of the current class, org/apache/jsp/WEB_002dINF/Views/Core/Page/GeneralPage_jsp, and the class loader (instance of java/net/URLClassLoader) for the method's defining class, org/apache/jasper/runtime/InstanceManagerFactory, have different Class objects for the type org/apache/tomcat/InstanceManager used in the signature

Fixed this Issue by Excluding the Tomcat embedded Jars, so the issue was that tomcat embedded jars were included as a transitive dependency in

<artifactId>dxa-web8-provider</artifactId>

and when deploying to a tomcat container there was a classloader issue, where classloader was finding 2 versions of the same class.

Fixed this error by excluding the tomcat-embed-jasper jar.In your dependency section add the exclusion tag.

<dependency>
            <groupId>com.sdl.dxa</groupId>
            <artifactId>dxa-web8-provider</artifactId>
            <exclusions>
                <exclusion>
                    <groupId>org.apache.tomcat.embed</groupId>
                    <artifactId>tomcat-embed-jasper</artifactId>
                </exclusion>
            </exclusions>
        </dependency>
