Hi

I run a console based program which contains two files , of which one contains the main. I want to run that program using jar file.
Problem encountered:
I am using javax.comm package in the program.
When i run jar file using : java -jar <filename>.jar
It gives the following exception:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/comm/CommPortIdentifier

at ConnectModem.ModemProcess(ConnectModem.java:22)
at ConnectModem.main(ConnectModem.java:18)

My Manifest file is:

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Class-Path: comm
Main-Class: ConnectModem

How can i run the jar file???

Thanks

You will have to add that other jar to your classpath. Somebody else asked the same thing this morning, I think it was here. Read that thread, which will probably answer your questions.
