. I was hoping someone could help me with a portability issue.
. I've created a jar in JBuilder Foundation 2005. Said jar executes successfully on computers Alpha and Beta, but not Cimarron. When I double-click on the icon on Cimarron, a small black window flashes up and disappears. After clicking a hundred times or so to figure out what it says, I figured out that it says "Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError C:\Sun\AppServer\jdk\bin\DMS-DNMS/jar" or "
... D:\Documents and Settings\lab\Desktop\DMS-DNMS/jar"
. I'm using an executable jar rather than command-line code because my users aren't programmers, and I don't want them to have to do anything other than double-click on an icon to make the program run.
. I have installed the latest jdk on Cimarron. I tried the program from both the desktop and inside the jdk bin. The desktop is on a different drive than the jdk, which is on the C drive, but it didn't run in the jdk folder either.
. I'm suspecting the problem lies in my immortal nemesis, the classpath, but I'm not sure how to confirm this.
. Oh, and just so you know, my manifest does list the appropriate file holding the "main". Pretty sure it wouldn't work on Alpha or Beta otherwise.
. So, what should I look for? I haven't tried other executable jars or any kinds of programs on Cimarron yet, so I don't know whether it simply hates all Java... that would be good to check out... anything else?
