My setup is fairly simple: I have a web front-end, back-end is spring-wired.

I am using AOP to add a layer of security on my rpc services.

It's all good, except for the fact that the web app aborts on launch:

  [java] SEVERE: Context initialization failed
     [java] org.springframework.beans.factory.parsing.BeanDefinitionParsingException: Configuration problem: Unable to locate Spring NamespaceHandler for XML schema namespace [http://www.springframework.org/schema/aop]
     [java] Offending resource: ServletContext resource [/WEB-INF/gwthandler-servlet.xml]

Here is the snippet from my xml config file:

<beans xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans"
       xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
       xmlns:aop="http://www.springframework.org/schema/aop"
       xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans.xsd
       http://www.springframework.org/schema/aop http://www.springframework.org/schema/aop/spring-aop.xsd">
    <aop:config>
        <aop:aspect id="security" ref="securityAspect" >
            <aop:pointcut id="securedServices" expression="@annotation(com.fb.boog.common.aspects.Secured)"/>
            <aop:before method="checkSecurity" pointcut-ref="securedServices"/>
        </aop:aspect>
    </aop:config>

I read over the internets that it may be my classloading the core of the problem. Doubtful, since here is my WEB-INF/lib directory:
