Third Party JAR used by JMon


Third Party JAR used by JMon

  • Hi,

    Is it possible to inject a *.jar jmon which references third party jars? As jar's are not able to contain other *.jars i followed the following steps but it failed:

    1. Wrote a simple Jmon *.jar and inserted it correctly into the correlator running the -j option. -> Worked

    2. Added a reference to a class from a third party *.jar. I compiled and created my *.jar -> Worked

    3. Started the correlator with -j option and -J "-classpath=/somedirectoryContainingJars" -> worked

    4. Injected my *updated* jar with references to classes located in a *.jar in the /somedirectoryContainingJars directory and the correlator spat out a ClassNotFoundException exception (below)

    4.5: I moved the third party jars to the $APAMA_HOME/lib too in case it could just load all jars by default from there but again this failed.

    Surely the purpose of writting jmon code is so that we can have custom java code running in the correlator's JVM so i'm just wondering the correct way of ensuring my third party *.jar files are correctly loaded so my jmon would recognise the classes i reference?

    Thanks in advance

  • You need to use -J "-Djava.clsss.path=..."

    You will need to include $apama_home/lib/jplugin_internal4.x.jar in the path

  • Hi Gregg,

    Thanks for your reply, that worked a charm.

    In case anyone uses this as a resource it appears that its the jmon_internal4.x.jar which is required (jplugin may have been a typo?), and classpaths can be delimited by ':'

    -J "-Djava.clsss.path=$apama_home/lib/jplugin_internal4.x.jar:/sampleDir/sample.jar"
