  • java/spring- getting NoClassDefFoundError at


    I am trying to initialise an RMI client for which I have used Spring.

    Now, the application's RMI context is stored in file= rmiClientAppContext.xml

    The relevant code for using the above file is given below--

    //RMI Client Application Context is started...
    ApplicationContext context = new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext("rmiClientAppContex t.xml");

    However, when I try and run the program, this is the error I am getting--

    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/commons/logging/LogFactory
    at ationContext.<init>(AbstractApplicationContext.jav a:164)
    at hableApplicationContext.<init>(AbstractRefreshable
    at hableConfigApplicationContext.<init>(AbstractRefre
    at licationContext.<init>(AbstractXmlApplicationConte
    at plicationContext.<init>(ClassPathXmlApplicationCon
    at plicationContext.<init>(ClassPathXmlApplicationCon

    On further investigation of the first line of error message above, I found that

    "164 is not a valid line number in ationContext"

    What have i done wrong here? I am using Spring v3.1.3
    How do I resolve the above error? Also, exactly which JARs do I have to include for the RMI client? And is there any specific order in which those JARs should be added to Java build path in Eclipse?

    Please use [ code][/code ] tags when posting code/xml/stacktraces that way it remains readable...

    I suggest a read of the stack trace you are missing the commons-logging jar that is the only required dependency for Spring (or if you use SLF4J the jcl-over-slf4j jar).

      Hi Marten,

      You were absolutely right.. I was missing commons-logging jar.
