javax.faces.FacesException: Error calling action method of component with id loginForm:submit
caused by:
javax.faces.el.EvaluationException: Exception while invoking expression #{LoginBean.login}
caused by:

I dont know why this error shows up, i think the MD4 implementation comes with the jdk already or not?
I have read in the forum that some users restart the tomcat until the error dissapear and sometimes this work for me too, but anyone knows the real reason why this error shows up from time to time?


Thanks, Santiago.
