Hi ranchers.
you know that we put the extra Jar files in the ext dir.
I put Jars like :, liquidlnf.jar,
the problem is the JVM is loading every jars in this dir except for the look and feel jars..
in my main class, I wrote:
the code is compiling fine, but when running it using the command:
java MajorClass
a ClassNotFoundException: com.birosoft.liquid.LiquidLookAndFeel
is thrown...
and if I wrote the command:
java -cp .;%JAVA_HOME%\jre\lib\ext\liquidlnf.jar MajorClass
the application works fine.
so what is the problem??
is there any problem with the JVM?
as I know, I should not point to the ext dir.
should I reinstall the sdk??

I have heard of problems like this caused by the fact that your Java installation may well have a separate jre with its own ext directory hidden under the "Program Files." Which one does your PATH point to?
