I successfully completed my first java project by using netbeans. The program runs perfectly on the machine which I built it on. However when i copy the executable Jar file to another machine and try to run it I get class not found exceptions.
For example : java.lang.ClassNotFound Exception: net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver
Is everything the program needs to run not packaged into the jar when it's created?
No. You'll want to modify the process of creating your executable jar so that the jar's manifest contains a reference to your AS/400 JDBC driver jar. You'll also want to install that JDBC driver jar in the right place (whatever the manifest says) before running your executable jar.
When you prepare the jar using netbeans it require a lib folder in the classpath for the jar that you are using in your project.
for eg-the folder must be having eg.jar and lib folder in same folder.
Hope this helps
