I have cf8 on my laptop (developer edition). I created a simple java class(dataGeneration) in eclipse, compiled it, exported it into .jar files and placed it in C:\Coldfusion8\wwwroot\WEB-INF\lib, restarted CF application service, but got an error when I try to do createObject("java", "dataGeneration");
in my .cfm page. So I entered the complete path in classpath setting in CF administrator, restarted, but the error still pops up.
I know it's something simple but I'm still not clear on the whole topic of how to specify a java .jar file that is already being picked up by coldfusion. How do I correctly instantiate the java object/.jar file?
