I've seen this problem posted numerous times, and I've tried every solution that I've seen so far, but haven't had any luck. I'm running on XP-Professional (it doesn't seem to support 'classpath', which I've seen in other postings used to correct the problem.). I've tried putting the classes12.jar file in every ext folder on my system - I've tried running the class with several IDE's and directly from the SDK - all without success.

Running WinXP-Pro; Oracle 9i, and SDK 1.4.1

Error Message:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: CollectValues
Code:


Does anybody out there have any additional ideas??

Sicne there is really no JDBC component to this problem, I'm going to move it along to the Java in General(intermediate) forum.

Show the following things:

a) The output after execution of the command 'echo %CLASSPATH%'

b) The output after the execution of the command 'dir' in the directory that you believe contains your class.

c) The command that you are issuing to receive the error ('java <something>' I assume)

Welcome to JavaRanch, Rob!

If your current working directory is the same directory where the compiled CollectValues.class file is, then the following command should run it, no matter your current CLASSPATH value.

java -cp . CollectValues

Does that work but just java CollectValues doesn't? If so, then the problem is that your CLASSPATH doesn't include the current working directory, as specified by a period.

For the steps to set the CLASSPATH environment variable on Windows XP, take a look at http://faq.javaranch.com/view?HowToSetTheClasspath

Of course, the location of the Oracle JDBC drive will need to be in your CLASSPATH, as well, in order for your code to run without error.

All. Thanks for your help.

Problem resolved - of course it was a simple classpath problem !!
