Using Apache Commons Configuration

This is my first attempt to use Commons Configuration and I am stuck right out of the box. I am setting up a test app and I don't know if this is my misunderstanding of what it does or something else. To make my environment clear I am using Eclipse and downloaded the configuration library. I then imported it into my project with the Eclipse build configure dialog. In Eclipse I can see the library as a branch of the correct tree. Here is my simple test code:

When I try to initialize 'config' I get a classNotFoundException (line 22). However, when I drill down the tree I can see that class. Can someone see what I am doing wrong? TIA.

After some searching I think I am missing a dependency. I think I need the commons exception runtime archive. However, I cannot find where to get it. Am I on the wrong track?
