Hi All,

I have placed a jar at root of EAR which is using jars placed in WEB-INF\lib when I access the application I am having exception java.lang.ClassNotFoundException for the jar placed in WEB-INF\lib. Can you please help what I am missing? I am using Websphere application server 6.1 for deployment.

Thanks,

Kashif

Kashif,
This is a classloader problem. Usually only the web project refers to jars in the web project. It would be better to move the dependency to the ear. The web project can refer to jars in the ear without problems.

Hi Jeanne,

You are right, it was the problem of ClassLoader I just changed class loading policy on application and it worked.

Thanks for your help!

Regards,

Kashif
