ClassNotFoundException while loading class from extension spring context file

Jump to solution

Guys  , 

I created a sample class registered in spring xml file in the folder(tomcat\shared\classes\alfresco\extension)  

packaged a class in a jar file and copied into  folder - tomcat\webapps\alfresco\WEB-INF\lib

When i restarted , i got  following exceptions(ClassNotFoundException) in Tomcat logs , is there any config or settings i need to have for loading the class.

It seems like Spring is unable to load this class from class path or lib directory

followings are log snippets -

That should be working. Is that class included in the JAR copied to alfresco/WEB-INF/lib folder?

thanks for the reponse I have resolved it

I was doing something wrong while creating jar file . Class files were not packaged in jar along with package structure.
