Exception in thread "Launcher: SwCreatePDF" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: -CLASS NAME-

The error message means that PDF Converter engine jar files did not extract properly and were not loaded by Notes client Java Virtual Machine.

PDF Converter engine is written in Java and its JAR files must be loaded in the Notes client JVM. The JVM loads new JARs only on startup so a restart is required if JVM is already running.

To resolve the issue locate the ext folder in your Notes installation (for example C:\Program Files\IBM\Notes\jvm\lib\ext).

If you find any of the JARs listed below in that folder, delete them:

  • bcpkix-jdk13-151.jar

  • bcprov-jdk13-151.jar

  • commons-codec-1.4.jar

  • commons-httpclient-3.0.jar

  • commons-io-1.4.jar

  • commons-logging-1.1.1.jar

  • flying-saucer-sw.jar

  • htmlcleaner2_1.jar

  • iText-2.1.7-sw.jar

  • jai_codec.jar

  • jai_core.jar

  • jodconverter-3.0.4.jar

  • juh-3.2.1.jar

  • jurt-3.2.1.jar

  • ridl-3.2.1.jar

  • slf4j-api-1.7.7.jar

  • swlmbcs.jar

  • swpdfc-2.0.0.jar

  • sw-unoil-3.2.1.jar

  • swUtilities.jar

  • xstream-1.3.1.jar

  • zip4j_1.3.2.jar

Now install the latest version of Seascape and restart your Notes client afterwards.

If restarting does not help it is recommended to do a complete SWING Seascape removal and start the conversion again. This will force SWING Seascape to set up all required resources again. Removal guidelines are available here:
