Thanks Mike,

Sounds like Maven approach worked, I haven't tried that. But without
Maven, it is much harder. Like I said (in the second email of the
thread) the relevant jars are all over the distribution including some
inside the .war file. And the only way to figure it out is to run the
client over and over again and keep adding jars until exceptions go
away. And huntings jars is fairly complicated for a beginner.

Perhaps the instruction should just say, use Maven and stop at that. I
can live with that, especially if we do that as a bundled example, so
non-Maven people don't have to figure the way to build those poms
