Hi,

this is my first shot at deploying the new UI and try it out, but my first attempt failed. I downloaded the 6.0.0.Beta1 from here: https://github.com/Activiti/Activiti/releases/download/activiti-6.0.0.Beta1/activiti-6.0.0.Beta1.zip
and put the activiti-app.war in $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps, but it failed with the following output:

Does anyone know what this means, and how to fix it?
