Just to continue my conceited Java blogging.

The thing I didn’t get with classpath is that you need to name the JAR file.


export CLASSPATH=/u01/app/jboss-4.0.1sp1/client/


export CLASSPATH=/u01/app/jboss-4.0.1sp1/client/activation.jar

I even wrote a Web app to compare CRAP ant -verbose classpath output between Linux and Win32.

I hate JAVA. It is so difficult for me to track which JAR file say example javax.servlet.ServletException comes from.


If you like this, you might like the stateless Web kiosk software I develop. Webconverger typically replaces Windows on PCs and is deployed in public and business environments for ease of deployment and privacy. Once installed it auto-updates making it painless to maintain. Try it where you exclusively use the only viable open platform... the Web!
