hi Ricardo,

This came up before but what I'm saying is that the Cocoon-1.6.jar that is

"does" have this dependency in the code (at least I continually get this
error AND the source code bundled with the jar has the code I posted).
I just (5 minutes ago) downloaded the jar file once again and below is
copied directly from the file in that jar:

  protected Class loadClass (String name, boolean resolve)
    throws ClassNotFoundException
    Class c = findLoadedClass(name);

    if (c == null) {
      try {
        c = findSystemClass(name);
      } catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
        byte[] bits = loadClassData (name);

        if (bits == null) {
          ClassLoader cl = getParent(); // Hmmm...

          if (cl != null)  {
            c = cl.loadClass (name);
        } else {
          c = defineClass (null, bits, 0, bits.length);

          if (resolve) {
            resolveClass (c);

      if (c == null) {
        throw new ClassNotFoundException (name);

    return c;

Maybe something is wrong with CVS? I'm not sure but try downloading the jar
file yourself and see what's in the source.

For now I'll change the code myself and recompile.
