Tomcat Startup Problem - Installing Web Application

I'm really struggling with this. I'ts been quite some time now but I can't seem to install a web application in my Tomcat webapps directory. Everytime I put a WAR file in the webapps directory of tomcat, it unpacks it but the console is filled with errors.

The same is true on tomcat startup as the example applications cannot be installed. Here is what the output is on trying to install an application (copying the WAR file):

Any help is appreciated:
