Hello All,

I have made jar file for my application. One of the class of my application uses BouncyCastleProvider class of BC jar.

I have created one folder "lib" in the same parent folder where my application jar is residing.

I have changed my machine CLASSPATH to point to this new lib folder. But when I run my application it gives me classnotfound exception.

But if I copy this BC jar file to my jre/lib/ext then everything works fine.

Can anybody tell me what I need to do to access BC jar file from my lib directory?

Thanks in Advance,
Jenish

CLASSPATH needs to point to the jar file itself, not the directory it's in.
