Are you running that program at the command line or through JBoss? IF the former, do you have itext.jar in your classpath?

Right so it compiles. The problem is at runtime. Have you added the jar to JBoss' runtime classpath?

hi all,
i have fixed the above problem.Here problem with Classloader. we can overcome this by placing jar file in web-inf/lib/ext folder. Probably we could not seen this.It is the secondary loaction for classloader to load the jars or third party files. further deatils go through this url:

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
