• How to add 3rd party jar files into nsf

    By Shashikumar V 4 years ago

    I am trying to find a way to put 3rd party jar files into nsf. Tried the following ways

    1. Adding jar files inside the nsf under WebContent/WEB-INF/lib folder and configuring the build path
    2. Adding jar files inside the nsf using jars design element and configuring the build path.
    3. Created a plugin out of the jar files following the documentation pointed by the link http://www.dalsgaard-data.eu/blog/wrap-an-existing-jar-file-into-a-plug-in/ and deployed the plugin both on designer and server

    None of the above cases worked. its throwing the error java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError

    But the app works fine when the jars are put under jvm/lib/ext folder on server

    Is there a way to make it work with out putting jar files under jvm/lib/ext folder

    Thanks

      Are you working with the OpenNTF API specifically, or do you mean with third-party Jars in general?

        The issue is about adding normal java jar files and not about any updatesite plugins.
