Q: XML-DBMS returns a NoClassFoundError exception.
Applies to: 1.x, 2.0
For example, the Transfer sample in version 1.x returns the following exception:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassFoundError: oracle/xml/parser/XMLParser at Transfer .toDBMS(Transfer.java:124) at Transfer.main(Compiled Code)
The most common causes of this are:
You do not have all the software you need to run XML-DBMS. For example, you do not have an XML parser. For a list of the software required to run XML-DBMS, see the readme.htm file in the directory in which you installed XML-DBMS.
Your CLASSPATH variable is not set correctly. The CLASSPATH variable tells Java where to look for classes. It must point to all of the software needed to run XML-DBMS, including xmldbms.jar (version 1.x) or xmldbms20.jar (version 2.). For information on how to set your CLASSPATH variable, see the Java documentation.
