Hi,
I have the following file :

package com.yatra.extremesearch.app;

import org.apache.log4j.Logger;
import org.springframework.context.support.ClassPathXmlApplicationContext;

public class ExtremeSearchApp {
	private static final Logger logger = Logger.getLogger(ExtremeSearchApp.class);
	
	public static void main(String args[]){
		
		 try {
			 logger.info("=====Starting Extreme search======");
			 new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext("classpath*:spring/root-context.xml");
			
			} catch (Exception e) {
				logger.error(e.getMessage());
			}
		}
}

Open in new window


when i start debugger on this i get the following error :

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/springframework/context/support/ClassPathXmlApplicationContext
      at com.yatra.extremesearch.app.ExtremeSearchApp.main(ExtremeSearchApp.java:13)
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.springframework.context.support.ClassPathXmlApplicationContext

      at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass(Launcher.java:301)
      at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:247)

How do i resolve it ?

Thanks

the spelling looks ok but doublecheck.
What is your classpath? Does it include spring api? Which version?

Hi,
I added some jars in the classpath by selecting run configurations in eclipse.
This error went away but now i am getting the following error :

SLF4J: Class path contains multiple SLF4J bindings.
SLF4J: Found binding in [jar:file:/E:/SvnCheckOut/trunk_ExtremeSearch/libs/jars/logging/slf4j-log4j12-1.6.1.jar!/org/slf4j/impl/StaticLoggerBinder.class]

First, the SLF4J problem seems to be due to some deployment (ant or maven build script?): the classpath contains both the input location of the libs (trunk_ExtremeSearch/libs/...) and the target of the build where these jars have been copied (trunk_ExtremeSearch/ExtremeSearch/target/libs). If there's such a deployment then the first one is needed for building only and should not be on the classpath of the configuration to run.

Second, some spring lib is still missing from classpath but at this point I think you shouldn't ad it to classpath; you should add it to same deployment that copies from trunk_ExtremeSearch/libs/... to .../target/libs.

HTH,
S.

Hi,
I changed the workspace and loaded the project from scratch again as i was unable to resolve the previous issue..
This time i dint get any run time error.
But i got an exception at the line :
new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext("classpath*:spring/root-context.xml");

So  have you verified if  database.properties is available ?

database.properties is present in the path ExtremeSearch\resources\properties\DEV
in my project.

Ok , couple of things you need to try here:

1. Copy the file to ExtremeSearch\resources  or/and ExtremeSearch\resources\properties

2 . If (1) does not work , search in your project for the string 'database.properties'  . Obviously , this would have been hardcoded somewhere . Give the full path to the file there

Your spring jars dependency needs to be uptodate along with versions,

I am sharing all required dependency from my project,

antlr-2.7.6.jar
com.springsource.net.sf.cglib-2.2.0.jar
com.springsource.org.aopalliance-1.0.0.jar
com.springsource.org.apache.commons.logging-1.1.1.jar
com.springsource.org.apache.log4j-1.2.15.jar
com.springsource.org.aspectj.tools-1.6.6.RELEASE.jar
com.springsource.org.aspectj.weaver-1.6.8.RELEASE.jar
commons-collections-3.1.jar
dom4j-1.6.1.jar
hibernate3.jar
hibernate-jpa-2.0-api-1.0.1.Final.jar
javassist-3.12.0.GA.jar
jstl.jar
jta-1.1.jar
mysql-connector-java-5.0.4-bin.jar
org.springframework.aop-3.1.4.RELEASE.jar
org.springframework.asm-3.1.4.RELEASE.jar
org.springframework.aspects-3.1.4.RELEASE.jar
org.springframework.beans-3.1.4.RELEASE.jar
org.springframework.context-3.1.4.RELEASE.jar
org.springframework.context.support-3.1.4.RELEASE.jar
org.springframework.core-3.1.4.RELEASE.jar
org.springframework.expression-3.1.4.RELEASE.jar
org.springframework.jdbc-3.1.4.RELEASE.jar
org.springframework.orm-3.1.4.RELEASE.jar
org.springframework.transaction-3.1.4.RELEASE.jar
org.springframework.web-3.1.4.RELEASE.jar
org.springframework.web.servlet-3.1.4.RELEASE.jar
slf4j-api-1.6.1.jar
slf4j-log4j12-1.6.1.jar
spring-security-config-3.1.3.RELEASE.jar
spring-security-core-3.1.3.RELEASE.jar
spring-security-taglibs-3.1.3.RELEASE.jar
spring-security-web-3.1.3.RELEASE.jar
standard.jar

Probably AOP & Security jars might be not required for you.

Plus you have to add database driver jars like for mysql -> mysql-connector-java-5.0.4-bin.jar, for Oracle -> Ojdbc.jar

Also add your ExtremeSearch\resources folder inside Source Tab of your Java Build Path from properties of the project.

Hope this should resolve all your problems.

I added some jars in the java build path library tab in eclipse. It resolved some of the error.
But i am still getting the following error when i start debug on the following file :

package com.yatra.extremesearch.app;

import org.apache.log4j.Logger;
import org.springframework.context.support.ClassPathXmlApplicationContext;



public class ExtremeSearchApp {
	private static final Logger logger = Logger.getLogger(ExtremeSearchApp.class);
	
	public static void main(String args[]){
		
		 try {
			 logger.info("=====Starting Extreme search======");
			 new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext("classpath*:spring/root-context.xml");
			
			} catch (Exception e) {
				logger.error(e.getMessage());
			}
		}
}

Open in new window




Error :

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: src/com/yatra/extremesearch/app/ExtremeSearchApp

Whats the difference between 1) and 2)

1) the classpath which is set in eclipse by selecting Debug configurations
2) adding libraries in java build path by selecting properties of the project.

(1)  is where the runtime looks for  classes (during runtime)
(2) is where the compiler looks for classes (during compilation)

Exception indicates that your src/com/yatra/extremesearch/app/ExtremeSearchApp class file not generated.

Check out ExtremeSearchApp.class file is generated or not after compiling classes.
