I'm getting this error from my jsp: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/xml/bind/MarshallableRootElement I checked the jar file I compield all the relevant classes with (jaxb-rt-1.0-ea.jar) andthe class is there in the right place. I get the same error when I compile them with the following classpath: /usr/j2se/lib/tools.jar: /home/member/k/keno/public_html/WEB-INF/classes/front_page: /usr/local/web/jakarta-tomcat-4.0.1/classes: /home/member/k/keno/public_html/WEB-INF/lib/servlet.jar: /home/member/k/keno/public_html/WEB-INF/lib/jaxb-rt-1.0-ea.jar The url is: http://www.redbrick.dcu.ie/~keno/front_page.jsp Thanks in advance, Keno
PS what's the story with useing org or com as directory names in your package? I was putting my classes in front_page/org to see what would happen and I got a type definition error. What are the different names and different types of directories they stand for?
Do you have other servlets or JSP that run with this setup? With respect to org or com as the base for your package - thats just a convention to give your class names a unique package. This is basic Java. Bill
How do you mean this setup? It's the first time I've used jaxb classes in conjunction with a jsp. I have a simple test package (redbrick.dcu.ie/~keno/simple.jsp) that interacts with a class that returns my name as a string. With front_page.jsp I just want to output the unmarshalled xml data as a string.. I have been able to unmarshal an xml file, add some info and marshall the updated data successufully using a class outside of my WEB-INF directory and the jar file I mentioned. I have put all the files in : http://www.redbrick.dcu.ie/~keno/fp_app/ As for the other thing, in retrospect it was the fact that I didn't put the package name in my java files that i was getting the wierd error(I'm fairly new to useing packages and jsp in general). Thanks for the reply, Brendan
hmm, unpacking the jaxb-rt jar file in my classes dir was enough to get it semi working properly, it's not outputting the tags right, but that might be something to do with a bad binding schema.. how can it be that this works and my jar file doesn't?
