I am running Suse 7.1 (uname -a = 'Linux linux 2.2.18 #1 Wed Jan 24 12:28:55 GMT 2001 i686 unknown') and have downloaded a java application to run. Having unzipped and untarred it and attempted to run it (java TimeTrack-1.0.jar), I am told "Can't find class TimeTrack-1.0.jar". Do I need to place the jar file in a particular directory or do I need to tell java where the jar exists ?

Cheers

Matt

You may just need to change the way you invoke java. Try:

java -jar TimeTrack-1.0.jar

This should work if TimeTrack-1.0.jar has a manifest that specifies the initial class to load, and if you are using java 1.2 or better. You can determine the version of java you have using with:

java -version

If that does not work, check the documentation for the name of the initial class to load. Then try:

java -cp ${CLASSPATH}:<path to dir>/TimeTrack-1.0.jar class.to.load

I'm using java version 1.1.8. Is this particularly old ? It doesn't seem to support either the -jar or the -cp options. I tried using the -classpath option to do:
   
   java -classpath /home/matt/downloads/web/TimeTrack/TimeTrack-1.0.jar TimeTrack.class

However that then gives a:
   Unable to initialize threads: cannot find class java/lang/Thread

error.

Java 1.1.8 is about two years old. You probably need to added the classes.zip file to your classpath.

java -classpath <path_to_java_home>/lib/classes.zip:/home/matt/downloads/web/TimeTrack/TimeTrack-1.0.jar TimeTrack.class

If you are not sure where you java home is, use "which java" to find it.
