I am getting Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError as below when runs a java standalone project using the JAXB version of the JAVA SDK.

loading wsdl : jar:file:/D:/SDK_JAXB/lib/ebaysdkcore.jar!/eBaySvc.wsdl
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError
        at com.ebay.sdk.ApiCall.executeByApiName(
        at com.ebay.sdk.ApiCall.execute(
       at com.ebay.sample.AppGetItem.main( to fix it?



    This occurs if you use Sun JDK 1.6.0_04 or below as your Java Platform and include the jaxp-1.4.2 libraries: ${JAVA_SDK_HOME}externalLib/optional/jaxp-1.4.2/*  in your CLASSPATH. 

   To fix it , you just need to remove the jaxp-1.4.2 libraries from your CLASSPATH since they are only needed if you are using IBM JDK 1.5.x.
