Tomcat can't find one of the Jars. Looking through the log we see:

       at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClassInternal(

This implies that the missing class may normally reside in the Batik 
Jar. A quick check of the contents of that jar confirm this to be the case.

So this tells us that Tomcat is unable to see the batik.jar for some reason.

First thing to do is to look to see if that jar is being packaged in the 
WAR. I did a war of our site-author and, as expected, the jar is present 
in WEB-INF/lib

Assuming that it is also present in your war file then I'm afraid this 
is a local installation problem with respect to Tomcat, not a problem 
with Forrest.
