I am getting this exception while starting my application.

Here is the stack trace of the exception:

In my folder structure, I have this class CustWOSet.class in the workorder folder.  I also tried to add this in the classpath explicitly in the environmental variables but still didnt work.

what package is the class in?
If its in workorder package then u need to add custom/app to your classpath
and call
Class.forName("workorder.CustWOSet");

If its in custom.app.workorder.CustWOSet then add the parent directory of custom to your classpath

The custom.app.workorder.CustWOSet is in a folder called Maximo which is in E:\ drive. So I should include E:\Maximo in my classpath. I already have that in the classpath.

thanks for the quick response.

make sure the class "CustWOSet" is in "E:\Maximo\custom\app\workorder" folder and u have "E:\Maximo" in classpath.

If you're running this from the command-prompt and you're setting the class-path using My Computer -> Properties, you need to close the command-window and start a new one. If you are using some IDE like Eclipse, you need to set the class-path there instead of using the system class-path.

I already have E:/Maximo in my classpath. Also, I am not running this application from the command line. The ear file is deployed in the weblogic server and I start the application by typing the url in a browser.

thanks for your ideas.

Weblogic ignores the system class-path.

>> I start the application by typing the url in a browser.

Browser is the client :) the server would've been started somewhere else.

So where else should I define the classpath if the weblogic ignores the system class-path?

thanks,

If the class is JARed, place it in the lib directory of the project or server. Otherwise place the custom directory inside the classes directory (the entire hierarchy custom/app/workorder along with the class file should be present).

That's fine. The classes the application needs have to be locatable.

Actually that error is fixed. I modified the build.xml and rebuilt the ear files and it worked.

thanks,
