Hi All, Can you please explain the difference between ClassNotFoundException and NoClassDefFoundError?In which cases both will be thrown? I know ClassNotFoundException is an checked exception,NoClassDefFoundError is an unchecked one(Runtime).Can anyone calrify me with some sample programs?.It will be a great help for me.Thanks.
Thrown when an application tries to load in a class through its string name using:
The forName method in class Class.
The findSystemClass method in class ClassLoader .
The loadClass method in class ClassLoader.
but no definition for the class with the specified name could be found.
Qute from NoClassDefFoundError
Thrown if the Java Virtual Machine or a ClassLoader instance tries to load in the definition of a class (as part of a normal method call or as part of creating a new instance using the new expression) and no definition of the class could be found.
The searched-for class definition existed when the currently executing class was compiled, but the definition can no longer be found.
