The class sits with all the other action classes in package dne.nmt.ond.acton and these are always picked up at compile time.
I have about 10 action classes in the same package all working correctly. Except this one. The other classes are Seam entities and therefore not included in the faces-config.xml file.
I'm using eclipse and used eclipse's auto-complete/auto-find feature to find this class so eclipse is finding it in the classpath, too.
I tried to add something else once to faces-config.xml and JSF was unable to locate that, too. Same problem, different task. I can't remember what. There is something amiss with my JSF configuration I think. But I don't really understand it very well yet so I'm not sure.
