hi all,
am trying to solve a classpath issue, am writing a servlet using netbean IDE 6.7.1 which comes intergrated with glassfish V3. i have set my JAVA_HOME and CLASSPATH variables to include the relevant jar files but for some reason i keep getting am error in the app server logs :

java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no ars3wapi32 in java.library.path

have even included the jar file in the .war file which gets packaged up.

so in a servlet how do i explicitly set classpath ??

That's not a missing jar file, it's a missing native library -- i.e., a DLL (for Windows) or .so (for Linux). The CLASSPATH isn't used for finding native libraries, but rather the java.library.path, a different setting altogether. I googled the name a bit, and I can't tell for sure where it's supposed to come from; it might be Websphere-related. What libraries are you using in your servlet?
