The server environment is the one that works (it just has the SSL  
issues that I'm trying to isolate and debug).

It's making it standalone that doesn't work.

And I've been doing Java and arguing with classpaths since 1996 so I  
think I'm pretty sure I'd already ruled the basics.  It should be  
unproblematic which is why I'm posting it here.

I mean, you really can't get much simpler than

set JAVA_HOME=C:\jdk1.5.0_06

set L=..\lib

set CP=%L%\[my code .jar]
set CP=%CP%;%L%\collections.jar
set CP=%CP%;%L%\commons-logging.jar
set CP=%CP%;.\commons-configuration-1.1.jar
set CP=%CP%;.\commons-lang-2.1.jar
set CP=%CP%;.\commons-digester.jar
set CP=%CP%;.\commons-beanutils.jar
set CP=%CP%;.\junit.jar
set CP=%CP%;..\.

%JAVA_HOME%\bin\java -classpath %CP% junit.awtui.TestRunner

Yet i get this failure for every combination of digester +  
configuration that I've tried.
