I just tried to start geronimo with 'java -jar bin/server.jar org/apache/geronimo/J2EEDeployer" and got the stacktrace below.
Like, did the NoClassDefFoundError originate on the client
(deploy tool) side or the server side?  
It was on the server side.
The stack trace might be
instructive there.

What version of the Geronimo code (M3, unstable, HEAD)
are you using?
  
svn r 208721

Could not start org/apache/geronimo/J2EEDeployer config

  Components: deployment  
    Reporter: Dondi Imperial


A NoClassDefFoundException (org/apache/geronimo/common/DeploymentException) is thrown when trying to start org/apache/geronimo/J2EEDeployer. I tried adding the geronimo-common-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar to the dependencies in j2ee-deployer-plan.xml and it started but most of the builder GBeans did not start. The log file says "because more then one targets are running for the single valued reference Repository".
