I am getting a java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError for one of the classes in a IBM Jar file being used in our application framework project. This IBM JAR file is no longer supported by IBM but is used by one of the application framework projects.
This jar file is not there in the application EAR file but it is referred using a variable from an external location
So in the classpath which is displayed in the error message, this Jar is not there.
I tried putting the Jar file in the application EAR as well but still the same error.
If anybody has any clues about this, please let me know.
I did change the Manifest file of this Jar since some of the Name values in the Manifest were more than 72 chars and RAD 7.0 gives error for it but WSAD 5.1 doesn't. So my guess is it is not able to read the Manifest file correctly?
