Problems running on solaris

I just don’‘t understand why whenever I try to run “./messenger start” from a solaris machine running java that it doesn’'t startup and the nohup.out file contains

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

What is the Launcher? Why is it missing? Most importantly, how can I get it up and running? The same tarball runs perfectly on 3 different linux machines containing the same version of java.

bash-2.03$ uname -a

SunOS jabdev-srv1 5.7 Generic_106541-27 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-80

bash-2.03$ java -version

java version “1.5.0_02”

Java™ 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_02-b09)

Java HotSpot™ Server VM (build 1.5.0_02-b09, mixed mode)

I was also running messenger 2.1.2 so I will try again with 2.1.3 on monday. Maybe it was magically fixed. Who knows. Would be nice to know if anyone else was experiencing this problem and if/how they managed to resolve it.

Please let us know if 2.1.3 does the trick. If not, we’'ll investigate the issue.



Yup that did it. I have no clue what has changed between 2.1.2 and 2.1.3 but it seems to be working fine in 2.1.3. Have it hooked up to our oracle database and it picked up all the user accounts and everything just fine.
