ClassNotFoundException while executing using "java -jar" command
Joined: Feb 23, 2004
Hi, I developed a java application. My application connects to postgresql using a database driver(pg73jdbc2.jar). The database driver jar file is there in my classpath. My program worked as expected when I executed it using the command
Then I bundled my application in to a jar file. When I tried to execute my program using the command, java -jar MyJar.jar it is complaining that the database Driver class(java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.postgresql.Driver) is not found.
I am sure that the driver jar is available in my class path and the program is working fine when a execute it using "java a.b.c.MyMainClass" command
I also tried by copying the driver jar to my "jre/lib/ext" directory, but no luck
What could be the problem ?
Any help would be highly appreciated.
