Hanging jdk

Hi, I've recently had an issue where a java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError exception is hanging the jdk. I've found this happens with different versions. Is this correct behaviour? It means if a jar is missing from the setup the jdk hangs, this makes it difficult for our monitoring software to pick up the problem.
I'm sure I'm missing something
Thanks
Adam

Well, unless that application was written to recover from a ClassDefNotFoundError - which it shouldn't be, then this error should terminate the application.
Why is the classpath incorrect?

My guess is that you are getting the Error in one thread, but others are still running and the VM won't exit till they are done.
