Hi all,

I'm new to WS and would like to deploy an application I'm developing though this technology.
When I run the jar file all works just fine, but launching it through web start gives me an classnotexception, although all the necessary jars are being dl'ed..

Here's my JNLP file:

And this is what my manifest looks like (of aqt.jar)

The resulting error looks like this:

The org/apache/commons/collections/SequencedHashMap class is located in lib/commons-collections-2.1.1.jar

What am I doing wrong?

I had came across to a very similar problem like u r talking about

I resolved it eventually.

Here are the possible reason why u r code might not be working

1] Any how make sure that ur required JARs (with the latest version) have downloaded by Java Web Starts before launching the app at client end

2] Be sure u signed all JARs with the same key

3] Try to work-around the prob by placing all JARs in the same directory
and in manifest file just give the dot-separated (.) list of JARs so
that during execution of the app at client side it will look-for resources into the application dir (current directory)

I used JNPL for a integrating Java App to a PHP page where my web application is running

Hope this will help u a bit
