Hi, I'm having a problem running an app on my iPaq. The Java version is 1.3.1 and on my desktop it's 1.3.1_13. The app runs fine on my desktop but when I try to run it on the PDA i get the following error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ClassFormatError: MapLayer (Truncated class
file)
at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass0(Native Method)
at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass(ClassLoader.java:486)

I can't tell from the above which of my classes is causing the error. Does anyone know why this might be happening? Any help greatly appreciated..

From the above error message, I'd say it is the class MapLayer that causes the problem. "Truncated class file" sounds like the file MapLayer.class is corrupt in some way.

Initially the MapLayer class ran ok on it's own. I'm now trying to build on the app..so MapLayer calls on other classes which in turn call other classes etc. It all works fine on my desktop though so I don't think the files are corrupt. Is there any other reason why a class file could be truncated?

Just because a copy of the class works on your desktop, it doesn't follow that some other copy of the class on another computer cannot be corrupted. Truncating a file could happen if copying it from one computer to another was interrupted in the middle of the process.

I agree, first thing to do is to do a clean recompile and then jar up a new archive to copy to the PDA.
