1. Created multiple Java Web Projects with unique server and JEE version settings
2. Made some manipulation to projects (added servlets, modified index pages, etc) and deploy/run all
3. Selected all projects and pressed "Debug" from IDE toolbar

exception was generated.

Thank you for reporting.

There is different letter-case in these file names:
RESTFULtest vs. RESTfulTest

Did you rename the folder?

(It is a problem to detect these file-name changes on case-insensitive filesystems.)
