Spark Example Plugin not loading

Question asked by JustJonny on Apr 14, 2008


I am trying to learn the basics of creating a plugin for spark.  Right now I am simply trying to get the example plugin from the spark dev kit to work, but am running into problems.  I am able to compile the plugin using ant and it creates a jar file, but when i copy the jar file to the plugins directory of my spark client (windows) i get the following error in the client log file...

Based on what i have read; i think this has something to do with my plugin.xml file class declaration and the directory structure to my source java file, but am at a loss.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
