Error when using spring layout - please advise!

When I try to run the below program.  I get the error message "noclassdeffoundError" javax/swing/SpringLayout"
I'm using Java 1_4_2 which should support this layout, I've also tried it on another machine with the same error.  Can anyone tell me whats going wrong
Heres the code - Thanks!!!

I leave you code unchanged, it compiles and run without this error. After start, an login panel is showed.
Question: the error appear before or after press login button?

if you answer is before, than check you java version again. I hava used the follow version:

java -version
java version "1.4.2_01"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_01-b06)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2_01-b06, mixed mode)

Your first problem should have been sorted by junges and the errors should be different....

SpringUtilities isn't in the java api, it's a class that's created in the SpringLayout tutorial.

http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/layout/spring.html
They have a link to the source for it.

I think your SringLayout.class file is corrupted or non-exist on the CLASSPATH.
