can you make sure that the jbm-core.jar is the first thing in your classpath
That was the first thing I tried after I read the Jira entry. jbm-core.jar is at top of Eclipse project classpath. Unfortunately the issue remains.
Can you create a self contained program which replicates this issue, file a JIRA and attach it?
While creating and executing the test client from the command line everything worked fine. After pointing the Eclipse Run configuration to the same JDK used in CLI mode it also worked in eclipse. In Eclipse I was using IBM JDK 1.5.
thank you all for your efforts.
