An InvocationTargetException with a NoSuchMethodError in it suggests a reflective call of a reflective call; sounds like some tricky code here.

But in any case, some method is there. The InvocationTargetException's "getCause()" method will return the NoSuchMethodError object itself; why not start by fetching that object, doing a printStackTrace() on it, and showing us the result. We'll work from there.

Are you sure? Show us the code where you lookup and call the method, and the class that contains the method. Is the method public?

Its working now, actually the method name in the exception was misleading.

That method does exists, but its calling a method in a pagebean, which actually is not present, reason being old class files for the pagebean.

Thanks a lot

Ah, great -- that's what I was anticipating above. Glad you figured it out.
