ClassNotFoundException in TransferHandler

First of all, excuse my bad english

I asked a question yesterday about how to cut/copy/paste styled text in a JTextPane and nobody answered . I did some research myself and i found i need to write my own TransferHandler for a class to store the transfered data.

I made this class, which contains a simple String and a list of attributes for each of the elements which will be contained in the text.

I created a TransferHandler which uses this mime type, and tries to create a DataFlavor based on it. If the class cannot be found, a ClassNotFoundException is thrown.

As you can see, the classes are in the same package, I can't imagine why the class cannot be loaded.

The class name is not StyledString but com.twip.editor.controller.StyledString - including the full package name.
