Share JAR files between Portal Application Packages


I am trying to share a common java component (JAR) file that will be shared among many other portal application packages.

I created my main shared component java classes and deployed it to Portal.

How can I share this package with other components? I modified portalapp.xml to include the line:

<property name="SharingReference" value="ProgistixEmployeeUtilities"/>

.... and also put this line under component-profile that needs to have access to my shared classes:

<property name="PAR_DEPENDENCIES" value="ProgistixEmployeeUtilities, com.progistix.ess.util"/>

However, I am still seeing the following error:

Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/progistix/ess/util/SapEmployeeConfig

Is there anything that I missed?

Please help,

    Hi Reza,

    if ProgistixEmployeeUtilities is the portal application which should be used from some other portal apps (and the par name therefore is ProgistixEmployeeUtilities.par, so the dir under WEB-INF/portal/portalapps has the name ProgistixEmployeeUtilities; which, just a remark, is not that nice without having a namespace), than the JAR to be used by other portal apps has to be set into the public lib part (ie under WEB-INF/portal/portalapps/ProgistixEmployeeUtilities/lib).

    You won't need any special entries within portalapp.xml.

    For the portal apps which should use this common lib, you have to make an entry under Application-Config (not within the component profile), because reference sharing works on a per application basis, not per component. See for the entries.

    For "who can access whom" see

    Hope it helps
