Hi everybody

I have a BIG problem with my ANT buildfile. I'm trying to run a simple Test to connect to my app's database, but after it succesfully COMPILES and JARS itself, when it gets to EXECUTE I get the following message:

[java] org.dotcom.contab.proceso.DAOException: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver

I know I probably have a problem with the CLASSPATH, since I'm running the app directly from the jar archive: here's the code:






I'm really really stuck, I've tried a bunch of things and I don't know what to do anymore. I read somewhere that when running a program from the jar it ignores user classpath settings, is it true??? I NEED to run it from the jar since it's one of the projects requirements...

PLEASE HELP!!!

Thanks in advance
Hector

I notice that you seem to be putting third party jars into your jar file. Those other jars will *not* automatically be on the classpath!

After fighting with the CLASSPATH for more than 24 hours, I fixed it

I had to put the JAR File next to the distribution. And set the Manifest's Class-Path to the JAR File. It finally worked. Thanks!
