    NoClassDefFoundError: Can't instantiate class on WL, works fine locally

    TenLeftFingers

      I have an ear running on WebLogic that contains an ejb. All runs well until the ejb tries to instantiate an object of ServiceFactory - one of our own classes.

      In my unit tests, I could create an object of the class locally. It's on the server that the error occurs.

      I'm guessing this is either a build/packaging issue or a WebLogic 10.3.6 quirk but don't know where to proceed from here given that the dependency exists in the ear (in APP-INF/lib). I've also tried moving the dependency that contains the class to the root of the ear. "Class-Path: " is blank in the MANIFEST.MF file for the ejb and the ear, but the product has run fine until now without them. I'm building with Maven.

       

      javax.ejb.EJBException: what do i do: seems an odd quirk of the EJB spec. The exception is:java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class com.company.ts.management.icm.service.ServiceFactory
