If a class dependency is missing, how can I determine which class is missing?

user2578 Published in July 16, 2018, 6:33 am

I am getting the error "Could not find or load main class" even though the class is there. From this answer, I learned that the class can likely be found, but not loaded, due to missing dependencies.

Aside from manually decompiling the class, checking all its dependencies, and if those are on the classpath, and so on for each dependent class ad infinitum....is there any way to determine exactly which class is missing from the classpath therefore causing Java to be unable to load my main class?

That other question was a question of a missing parent/interface class. But I have manually checked that all ancestor classes are either on the specified classpath or in the JDK, as below.

$ cd ~/picketbox
$ java -cp picketbox-4.1.1.Final-redhat-1.jar org.picketbox.datasource.security.SecureIdentityLoginModule HelloWorld
Error: Could not find or load main class org.picketbox.datasource.security.SecureIdentityLoginModule
$ jar xvf picketbox-4.1.1.Final-redhat-1.jar > jarxvf.txt
$ cat jarxvf.txt | grep SecureIdentityLoginModule
 inflated: org/picketbox/datasource/security/SecureIdentityLoginModule.class
$ cd org/picketbox/datasource/security/
$ javap SecureIdentityLoginModule.class | grep main
  public static void main(java.lang.String[]) throws java.lang.Exception;
$ javap SecureIdentityLoginModule.class | grep extends
public class org.picketbox.datasource.security.SecureIdentityLoginModule extends org.picketbox.datasource.security.AbstractPasswordCredentialLoginModule {
$ cat ~/picketbox/jarxvf.txt | grep AbstractPasswordCredentialLoginModule
 inflated: org/picketbox/datasource/security/AbstractPasswordCredentialLoginModule.class
$ javap AbstractPasswordCredentialLoginModule.class | grep extends
public abstract class org.picketbox.datasource.security.AbstractPasswordCredentialLoginModule extends org.jboss.security.auth.spi.AbstractServerLoginModule {

$ cd ~/picketbox/org/jboss/security/auth/spi/
$ javap AbstractServerLoginModule.class | grep implements
public abstract class org.jboss.security.auth.spi.AbstractServerLoginModule implements javax.security.auth.spi.LoginModule {
$ cd ~/rtjar
$ cp /usr/java/jdk1.8.0_141/jre/lib/rt.jar ./
$ jar xvf rt.jar | grep spi/LoginModule
