My web application works great without any errors. However, when i am trying to do same stuff using standalone application, i am getting hit with strange errors.
import org.springframework.context.support.ClassPathXmlAp plicationContext;
public class pure
public static void main(String args)
ApplicationContext context = new
All my xml files are stored in the same directory as the above java file.
My CLASSPATH points to all relevant spring jar files and java 1.6.X jdk jars
Trial 1: When i try to compile the java program, i get error
package org.springframework.context does not exist and similar errors on other packages and symbol not found errors etc
Trial 2: I manually copied all jars to the same directory location where my java programme resides. I still get the same error
Trial 3: But the errors seem to go away one by one when i incrementally start un jarring each of the spring jar files and all other dependent jar files.
jar -xvf spring-beans-2.5.5.jar
jar -xvf commons-logging-1.1.1.jar
Note:One thing i noticed was the Manifest files donot have Main-Class attribute in all the jar files. So i am also not able to run the following command
Java -jar spring-beans-2.5.5.jar
How can i overcome these errors?
I don't want to copy all the jars locally to my programme and i certainly don't want to un jar the dependent jar files.
Whats my solution. I am new to Spring and also to Java.
