Yes, that seemed to be the root of the problem although I don't quite
understand it:

Both the service and the library were build with Java 1.5.0_19 on my
development machine. The service alone and the library alone (on the
command line) are running fine on the server (Java 1.6.0_07). The
combination of both does not seem to run. Why is that????

Also, shouldn't there be some form of backward compatibility for
classes compiled in java 1.5. and running on 1.6??? (I'm not very
deeply involved in this whole Java eco system...)

I now just recompiled both the service and the library on the server
and it worked.

Hope someone can clarify this for me!

Best & Thanks,
