Hello there,

I have created a simple Java application and I want to proovide it to the client as Jar file. My software has a 3rd party licence which needs to be there for the application to run. I am using eclipse to bundle the applciation but when i run the application I get error saying cannot find the lic. from eclipse i have place the lic like so

static String licFilePath = "\\lib\\BarCode.lic";

and it is working fine from my eclipse. But when I run it from cmd prompt like so Z:\>java -jar demo.jar

Z:\>java -jar demo.jar
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/se/barcode/License
        at com.demo.Demo2.setLicense(
        at com.demo.Demo2.main(
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException:
        at Method)
        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(
        at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass(
        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(
        ... 2 more

my MANIFEST file looks like so

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Class-Path: se-barcode-7.6.0.jar se.BarCode.lic
Main-Class: com.demo.Demo2
