I have an application packaged as a jar file, and it uses two other jar files when it runs.
I get it to work with no problem when I add the "Class-Path" header into
the manifest file as follows:
Class-Path: firstFile.jar secondFile.jar
In this scenario, the jar files are located in the same directory as the
jar that I am envoking.
Is there a way for me to place these jars inside of the jar that I am envoking and get it to run?
When I put them inside of my executable jar, the files cannot be found, and I get infamous "java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError" error.
How can I get the classpath to reach into the executable jar?

Hi Terrence,
If the classpath is set to smthg like blahblah;.; then it will check the current directory also for the classes. Do let me know if ur classpath includes "."

Vinod.

I am trying to package all of the jar files that the program needs into one jar.
As it stands now (I do have the dot in the CLASSPATH), it is searching the current direcory, but I need it to look into the executable jar file, not the current directory.
Thanks,
Terrence

Terrence, see if something towards the end of the Creating an Executable JAR thread doesn't help you out.
