Error creating bean with name 'ticketRegistry' defined in ServletContext resource [/WEB-INF/spring-configuration/ticketRegistry.xml]: Could not resolve matching constructor (hint: specify index/type/name arguments for simple parameters to avoid type ambiguities)

If you are working on CAS for SSO functionality and while trying to use CAS server, you got below exceptions in your log:

SafeContextLoaderListener:
The Spring ContextLoaderListener we wrap threw on contextInitialized.

Solution:

Basically you might get this because of these reasons (I used to get):
1. Jar files not found in applications WEB-INF/lib directory
    Or, some jars are conflicting with each other.
    Check for same jars in different versions should not exist (at least in some cases).

2. Check you maven's dependencies (for getting these jars).
     You can use mvn dependency:tree  to find out if there is any jar loaded twice, which might be causing conflict.

3. the pom.xml file should contain proper dependencies.
  deployerConfigContext.xml, ticketRegistry.xml should have right beans and configured properly depending on your CAS server (Basically different CAS servers use different configurations in these files).
