When i run my program from netbeans, everything works well. But when i try to run it from the command prompt using java -jar JavaApplication3.jar i get the following errors:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/sun/logging/
LogDomains
        at com.sun.appserv.security.ProgrammaticLogin.<clinit>(Programmatic
Login.java:85)
        at demo.Main.main(Main.java:31)
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.sun.logging.LogDomains
        at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(Unknown Source)

        at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass(Unknown Source)
        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(Unknown Source)
        ... 2 more

What do i need to do to make it run from commandline?

you need to add the classpath to the following command
java -jar -cp <path of jar file with classes required in classpath> filename.jar

for reference
http://download.oracle.com/javase/1.4.2/docs/tooldocs/windows/java.html

download the jar file from here

you need to either add the relative location of the dependent jars to your manifest

or specify them on the command line

 java -cp JavaApplication3.jar;a.jar;b.jar demo.Main

FInd program dependent jars and set the class path like below and run the program

set classpath=.;c:/yourjars

i tried setting the classpath to the dist/lib directory where netbeans copy the libs i add to the project, but no difference.

Found the problem, i needed to add the appserv-deployment-client.jar to the project. Strange that it worked from the ide without this.

Under dist/lib  as earlier. And i have no idea how it could have worked earlier from netbeans when i did not have appserv-deployment-client.jar added. If i delete any other lib from the project it wont run, but it seem to run fine without that jar when starting from  netbeans. That is still a mystery for me.

Should also add that it was able to find libraries under the lib folder automatically, so setting class path was not an issue in this case. But thank you all For trying to help! Really appreciated.

Check the manifest in your jar file, sounds like the jar is specified in there

only jars in ext directories get found automatically :)

Ah right,  netbeans adds a manifest to the jar when building  that contains lib/ as a classpath. That explains how it finds the files i added there.  I can find out that by extracting the files in the jar file with jar -xf javaapplication3.jar. But if i remove the  appserv-deployment-client.jar in netbeans, do a rebuild the manifest in the jar file contains no reference to appserv-deployment-client.jar. But it is still able to run it from netbeans.

I searched under my application3 directory for additional .mf files but the only one that exisit is a manifest.mt under the .\build\ direcotry that contains contains:
"
Manifest-Version: 1.0
X-COMMENT: Main-Class will be added automatically by build
"

So how does it find things from that jar when inside netbeans?

Hmm, That should be the build directory under Application3 that i mentioned earlier? It only  contains an "empty" manifest.mf file and the .class files. No other manifest.

C:\Users\js\Documents\NetBeansProjects\JavaApplication3\build>dir /s /w
 Volume in drive C has no label.
 Volume Serial Number is 5E3A-BF8F
