Subject Re: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError is plaguing me
Date Tue, 12 Nov 2002 21:11:41 GMT
I've also had similar problems with compiling JSPs under TOMCAT. I think 
what's happening is that, since a JSP has to be compiled, TOMCAT runs 
javac. But javac obviously doesn't use the same custom class loader that 
Axis uses, so in order to make those jars visible to the compiler, they 
have to be in the classpath, or in a directory like common/lib where 
Tomcat can find them and add them to the classpath.
