Hi guys I have a class which parses a schema and creates an XML document from the schema.It works fine but when I try to write it as a servlet application, I get the following internal server error: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/xml/parsers/ParserConfigurationException at java.lang.ClassLoader.resolveClass0(Native Method) at java.lang.ClassLoader.resolveClass(ClassLoader.java:429) at com.sun.web.core.ServletLoader.loadClass(ServletLoader.java:124) at com.sun.web.core.ServletLoader.loadServlet(ServletLoader.java:30) at com.sun.web.core.ServletWrapper.loadServlet(ServletWrapper.java:81) at com.sun.web.core.ServletWrapper.handleRequest(ServletWrapper.java:109) at com.sun.web.core.InvokerServlet.service(InvokerServlet.java:169) at javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet.service(HttpServlet.java:840) at com.sun.web.core.ServletWrapper.handleRequest(ServletWrapper.java:140) at com.sun.web.core.Context.handleRequest(Context.java:375) at com.sun.web.server.ConnectionHandler.run(Compiled Code) Normal servlets work fine except this one. I tried changing the classpath but no joy. I was wondering if any body out there had a similar problem and could give me some advice. cheers Frank
"Frank M", The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements. Thanks.
Some servers basically ignore the CLASSPATH; instead, there is one hardcoded in the server's main jar. To use the parser classes, you would need to put them in your web-application's WEB-INF/lib or WEB-INF/classes directory (for jars and .class files, respectively). Have you tried stuffing your XML parser jar in WEB-INF/lib? ... By the way, most or all servers have their own XML parser. But it's best not to depend on that, after all, it would introduce a server dependency. - Peter
