    "AbsoluteLayout" in Netbeans 4.1  IDE (early access 2)

      Hi !
      Netbeans 4.1 IDE generates/updates a output "project JAR" for you with each build.

      In the "help" section under "layout managers" it states:
      "To distribute an application with the IDE's "AbsoluteLayout" manager, you must include the IDE's AbsoluteLayout classes, as these are not part of the standard Java layout sets. These classes are ready for deployment in :
      " <install-dir/ide4/modules/ext/AbsoluteLayout.jar "

      When I run this project JAR from the command prompt , error is:
      " no class def for "org/netbeans/lib/awtextra/AbsoluteLayout"
      (app runs fine inside IDE)

      I see this file in my build file , but will not run : (
      I also see the "absolute.jar" file listed "inside" my "project JAR"

      Current Manifest.mf reads:

      Manifest-Version: 1.0
      Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.6.2
      Created-By: 1.5.0_01-b08 (Sun Microsystems Inc.)
      Main-Class: AddRFSwitchMain
      X-COMMENT: Main-Class will be added automatically by build

      ...... any help with this please?
