thanks Scott -- very helpful !

So, in web.xml, I removed $IDP_HOME$/conf/mcb-spring.xml; from where I 
had added it; this is now back to its original content:


Now, the IDP starts up normally and completely.

I do get these two lines near the end of idp-process, but we know why 
this error is occurring.

15:24:09.072 - DEBUG 
- Attempting to load bean [mcb.Configuration]
15:24:09.078 - ERROR 
org.springframework.beans.factory.NoSuchBeanDefinitionException: No bean 
named 'mcb.Configuration' is defined

Any suggestions on figuring out where things might be going awry ?

btw, my IDP with the MCB was starting up correctly, and it presented me 
with its JAASLogin page -- login failed because I hadn't mapped to the 
correct JAAS configuration name in login.config. I corrected that 
value.... and everything immediately fell off the tracks ...
