This Java program is supposed to work. But it doesnít. From what I can figure, the problem has something to do with the springframework package. Iím a beginner java programmer so I donít really know where to start so Iím simply including the whole project file which can be downloaded from herecabio.zip
This program conducts a simple cancer research project using CaBIO . CaBio is an ant project which has 3 folders (conf, lib, src) and a build file and according to CaBIo we need to link the lib and conf folder with my project so I created a new project(cabio) in jcreator and added the two directories project>add Existing Directory.

Iíve also added the batik-swing.jar (batik-swing.jar in project>project setting>required libraries because it was used in one of the files.
Iím using JDK 1.5.0.14 because itís recommended with the CaBIO and JCreator pro 4.50.010.

I can build the project. When I want to run the project, that is run the swingCaBio.java the program starts. From the GUIwhenever I try to access the search options of any of the 4 tabs for example, clinical trail>search text> if I put ďskin cancerĒ I get the following exceptions.
