Hi,

Would anyone please happen to have any experience with the following "project dependencies" problem ?

I'm trying to defined 2 projects as follows:
1) PlainProject : a simple java project, holding some plain utility classes.
2) WebProject : a web project, *that uses code from PlainProject*

I have, of course, edited the "project properties" of WebProject,
and made sure that "PlainProject" is checked in both:
- "project dependencies"
- "build path/projects".

No, I have no problem *compiling* the WebProject (I can even see my PlainProject methods when using auto completion).
However, it fails on *runtime* : when running WebProject (on WSAD 5.1.1 test environmet), it throws a NoClassDefFoundException.

Both projects hold straight-forward code, no tricky usage of ClassLoaders, and no 3rd party jars.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks .

You need to put your Java project to web project as JAR file in WEB-INF\lib directory. Than the web application will be able to access the clasess from your Java project.

Open application.xml, Go to Modules, and in Project Utility JARs add your utility product.

Hope this helps.
