This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm in the process of compiling a Third-Party jar file. All the file is going to contain is class-path references to a whole bunch of jar files. i.e. there are no .class files in the JAR, only a class-path reference in the manifest file:
The manifest file contains this: Class-Path: lib/a.jar lib/b.jar lib/c.jar
The problem I'm experiencing, is that I can run against the above jar, but cannot compile using javac against it. The compiler cannot seem to find the referenced jars. i.e I get "package xxx does not exist" errors
My classpath when executing against the .JAR, and when I compile against it is the same.
