Hi,

I am trying to execute a jar file which looks for a driver in another jar file.

Though I had the path in the classpath, you need to mention the class-path for the jar specifially. So, I have these lines in the manifest file,


But still, the jar file is not searched in the lib folder.
I get the following error -
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Driver


By the way I am trying to use hibernate pojo generator project for which I am doing this.

Let me know if anyone has any solutions for the same.

Presumably, then, that "lib" folder is not in the same folder as the jar? Your file structure should look something like this:

-- somefolder
-- -- your.jar
-- -- lib
-- -- -- db2jcc4.jar

And not like this, with the JAR file inside the other JAR file:
-- somefolder
-- -- your.jar
-- -- -- lib
-- -- -- -- db2jcc4.jar
