Hi,

I have an app that uses the Borlands jbcl package. (com.borland.jbcl.layout.GridBagConstraints2). If I compile the app I get no errors. If I run the app it gives the following error:  java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/borland/jbcl/layout/GridBagConstraints2

I'm using JBuilder 8 se and Java JDK 1.18_08.

Thanks for any help.

That means you've got a discrepancy between your compile time and runtime environments. You need to make sure the version of java.exe you're using is the correct one.

...and that the classpath to those proprietary classes is included.

You need to address these two issues too:

a. you need to upgrade that ancient JDK
b. You need to ask yourself whether any convenience value of using proprietary classes like these is outweighed by the possibility, if it is not packaged correctly, of breaking the code once it is out of your IDE in exactly the sort of way you describe here. And that is quite apart from the issues raised by not adhering to standards-based code in terms of general principles.

CEHJ is right, but if you really can't get around the issue (time constraints for example), then you can set Borland's com.borland.jbcl.layout.GridBagConstraints2 as one of your project's "dependencies".

You can do this with JBuilder itself, and is handy, especially if you're creating a jar file. (If not, you'll need to distribute that class with your app).

If you create your jar file with JBuilder, then you can set it so that the dependencies will include all classes and resources, which simply means that class will get added to your jar file when compiling.

Hope that helps
