first of all my classpath look like this:
The application client lies in the HelloClient.jar file. The manifest in this char file looks like:
Manifest-Version: 1.0
Main-Class: HelloWorldClient
Class-Path: Hello.jar
The Hello.jar is also included in the classpath.
As for my understanding since both jar files are found in the classpath it would be enough to call launchclient HelloWorldClient, since the HelloClient.jar file is included in the classpath.
However, the following error occurs(bit german in there):
D:\>launchclient HelloWorldClient

WSCL0012I: Die Befehlszeilenparameter werden verarbeitet.

What is wrong here ?

That's not how launchClient works. You must include the Application client code in an "application client" Jar file inside an EAR file and then use the EAR file as a paramter to the LaunchClient program.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
