In order to reduce the size of the distribution files, the examples are distributed in source code and not yet compiled. The ant build file is also distributed in the jade root directory that allows to compile all the examples (‘ant examples’). If you get a ClassNotFound exception, the most common problem is that you have not properly set the CLASSPATH. It must include all the .jar library files that are in the jade/lib directory (i.e. jade.jar; jadeTools.jar; iiop.jar; Base64.jar) plus the directory where the examples have been compiled (i.e. jade/classes).
