NoClassDefFoundError - java.awt.Color

Hey everyone,

I recently ran in to an issue where calling functions from java.awt.Color caused a "NoClassDefFoundError" in the JSP page. I restarted resin and kept refreshing this JSP page. I saw a different error message that looked like this:

java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_02/jre/lib/i386/libawt.so:
libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This error was much different from the previous error but shows that when AWT was trying to initialize it could not locate "libXp.so.6". Through some more research I found that libXp.so.6 was part of the "xorg-x11-depreciated-libs" package in CentOS 4.5. I issued a "yum -y install xorg-x11-depreciated-libs" and a "ldconfig" to be safe and restarted resin. My java.awt.Color functions seemed to work perfectly after this.

Hopefully this helps someone!
