Exception in thread "Main Thread" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: main

I have the following piece of code :

public class ServiceLoader {
public static void main(String[] args) {


Open in new window

When i run it inside eclipse Indigo it gives the following error :
Exception in thread "Main Thread" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: main

Although main is defined correctly in it still its showing the same error.
What could be the reason for this.

If memory serves for Eclipse you need to tell it the name of the main class in the run configuration - perhaps it is set to a different class than ServiceLoader?

I found this out.
There were some invalid jars in the buildPath. Just removed them and it worked.
