VDC Playground not working

I am trying to follow the instructions from "Launch VDC Playground".

After launching "java -jar vdpplayground.jar" I am getting the following:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/json/JSONException                                               at java.base/java.lang.Class.forName0(Native Method)                                                                    at java.base/java.lang.Class.forName(Class.java:375)                                                                    at org.eclipse.jdt.internal.jarinjarloader.JarRsrcLoader.main(JarRsrcLoader.java:56)                            Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.json.JSONException                                                             at java.base/java.net.URLClassLoader.findClass(URLClassLoader.java:466)                                                 at java.base/java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:563)                                                      at java.base/java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:496)                                                      ... 3 more

Re: VDC Playground not working

Hi,

 

Thank you for the answer. Yes, I do have JDK 1.8 installed.

I tried the reinstallation (and computer restart afterwards) as requested. The issue still exists.

Re: VDC Playground not working

Hey @MoonWalker00,

 

Are you experiencing this issue only on one machine? Have you tried downloading VDC Playground on another machine to see if it works? 

 

What machine are you trying to install VDC Playground on? Can you please provide all the steps that you are doing during the installation process leading up to the error?

 

Java is saying that it cannot find a class called "org/json/JSONException". Make sure you have the required jar in your CLASSPATH.

 

To explain, this runtime error is thrown by the JVM during an attempt by a ClassLoader to load the definition of a Class and when such Class definition couldn't found within the current ClassLoader tree. To clarify, this means that the Class definition was found at compiled time but isn't found at runtime.

 

Here are some things you can try to resolve the issue:

  1. To start, try finding out the jar file that's causing the problematic class file.
  2. You'll need to check whether your classpath contains that jar, if your classpath doesn't contain the jar then you'll need to add that class in your classpath.
  3. If the jar is present in your classpath then most likely your classpath is getting overridden or your application is using classpath specified in jar file or start-up script and to fix that you'll need to find the exact classpath used by your application.

I was searching for the same solution on various website on the internet and here I found the solution. I hope you also made it resolved.
