Answer: Please check your XML file for tag probably it is missing. Whenever you create definition of bean it should be inside tag. Below is sample context file with tag:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<beans xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans"
    xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:context="http://www.springframework.org/schema/context"
    xmlns:tx="http://www.springframework.org/schema/tx" 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">

<bean id="personBean" class="com.javahonk.bean.PersonImpl" />

</beans>
