Hi, I am running my spring application with embedded tomcat. While starting it with spring boot, I am getting following error.

You need to check if you have included servlet-api jar in your classpath, if yes, we need to delete it.
If servlet-api is in classpath, it is included in WEB-INF/lib and then the error is thrown because servlet container has already servlet api jar.
