Hello java ranchers! I've read the topics here about jar and suns tutorial about jar. Doesn't seems to get it right anyway. I've created 2 classfiles in diffrent directory's ( testing protected etc ). The classes compile and it can be run without any compications. When I try too make a jar file it doesn't seems to work.
I've created the jar file like this jar cmf classLoader.txt test.jar chat\test\test.class chat\test1\test1.class in my classLoader.txt file it just say "Main-Class: chat\test1\test1". I have altso tested to just type "Main-class: test1" and "Main-Class: test1.class" and so on. The mainfest.mf seems to be right and the jarfile looks fine , but when I try too run it like this: java -jar test.jar I get an errormessage like this: Exception in thread main. NoClassDefoundError. How come when it runs without jar? Hope you can understand what I meen. Cheers

Where does your jar sit, and what is your classpath? Sometimes just putting the jar file IN the classpath helps.

I have included the jar file path in my classpath. Ive tried the wheretostart.txt. I dunno why the textfile must be named like this? Seems to me that i can name my testfile anything. All it does is copying the line in the textfile to the line in manifest.mf. Is there another way of making a jar file. I think it is my package declaration wich is wrong. Class test goes in package chat\test. and class test 1 goes in package chat\test1. When compiling I used the following line. javac chat\test\test.java javac chat\test1\test1.java which gave me to classfiles. I've added the following line to autoexec.bat PATH=%PATH%;"C:\Program\Mts";c:\jdk1.3\bin" Can't think of anything else to do. Please help. // Snylt Master
