I have developed an swing application using XML config file. i have used jdom. for development i had the jdom.jar file in the class path. when i executed the app:
$ java MyFrame
it worked fine. then i bundled the compiled class files in a jar file indiwiz.jar (with appropriate manifest file), & execute:
$ java -jar indiwiz.jar
the exception thrown is:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/jdom/input/SAXBuilder
jdom.jar is still in the classpath. why is this error being thrown?
