Hello,

We are running into a strange issue when trying to run this class named Test.  We are using a program called Optimal J, and when we execute this class inside of Optimal J it works perfectly.  When we try to execute this class using java Test it does not work.  

We ran java -cp . Test and this was the output:

ClassNotFoundException: com.ibm.as400.access.AS400JDBCDriver
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
        at Test.main(Test.java:83)

The classpath is as follows:
C:\Sun\AppServer\jdk\jre\lib\ext

The path to the driver is:
C:\Sun\AppServer\jdk\jre\lib\ext\jt400.jar

We are running Windows XP Professional.

Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Line 83 is commented below.

Put that jar in the directory revealed by running the following with the parameter "java.ext.dirs"


public class Props {

        /**
         *  The main program for the Props class
         *
         * @param  args  The command line arguments
         */
        public static void main(String[] args) {
                if (args.length > 0) {
                        for (int i = 0; i < args.length; i++) {
                                System.out.println(System.getProperty(args[0]));
                        }
                }
                else {
                        System.getProperties().list(System.out);
                }
        }
}

I tired running that Props class you gave me and I get a NoSuchClassDef error, but it worked in OptimalJ because OptimalJ has it's own CLASSPATH.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
