Subject Re: Grrrrr... java.lang.ClassNotFoundException
Date Fri, 14 Oct 2005 22:31:49 GMT
Hi Nelson,

I'm not sure if it will help, but I had a class not found exception
when I was first attempting to run cactus on Tomcat.  It sounds like
your container can't find one or all of the cactus classes.  I fixed
my problem by putting the jar files that cactus needs in my
WEB-INF/lib directory.  Once I put them there, all was well.

The jar files that you need are:
# cactus-1.7.jar
# junit-3.8.1.jar
# aspectjrt-1.2.1.jar
# commons-logging-1.0.4.jar
# commons-httpclient-2.0.2.jar

I hope that at least points you in the right direction.

Good luck.
