Java "Launcher" message

Hey guys, I’'ve tried both 2.2.2 and 2.3.0_alpha_1, but when I try to start Jive Messenger, the following error is written to nohup.out:

Exception in thread “main” java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/install4j/runtime/Launcher

I have version 1.5.0_05 of the Java Runtime Environment, installed in /usr/local/lib/jre/ .

I had to add the following to the beginning of the jive-messengerd init script, otherwise messenger couldn’'t attempt to start:

  1. If the environment variable INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME hasn’'t been set yet, set it

if ; then

export INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/lib/jre


Let me know if you have any suggestions. I’'m all ears!


I’‘ve not checked, but I’'m guessing that the missing class can be found in i4jruntime.jar in your /jive_messenger/.install4j/ directory. Try linking to that instead, see what happens.
