So I have written a java program that uses Commons-Net. Everytime i run my program from the .jar file it errors out telling me it cannot use the Commons-Net, but i have the the commons-net .jar included in the .jar file that i created. But everytime i try to run it, i get errors, what should i do for my classpath? Or what else could it be?

I assume you are trying my previous suggestion about the Class-path attribute of the Manifest file? Didn't realize you were looking to bundle it all together...So you basicaly have two options.

1) unjar the classes in the commons-net into your project and jar everything up together without a jar within the jar.

2) look into a utility such as One-JAR (http://one-jar.sourceforge.net/), which has its own classloader to help...

Good Luck.
