I have use WSAD 5.0 to export a jar file with main class.

When i try to use my windows cmd promt to run the jar file with the following command:

java -jar e:\myjar.jar

it can success run the main class, but when it is trying to access the class within ANOTHER jar file included in myjar.jar lib folder, I got a NoClassDefFoundError for that class.

How can I solve it?

Thanks.

You can put a jar file inside another jar file.

Place it outside the jar file, then set the classpath in the Manifest.mf e.g.
Manifest-Version: 1.0
Main-Class: com.test.MainClass
Class-Path: another.jar

Or place the classpath during execution
java -classpath another.jar -jar myjar.jar
