Wat the heck? Any idea why the first works and not the 2nd? How do I -jar my scala??

My thanks in advance, brother.

Answer

If you define -jar the -classpath is ignored:

Java manual:

-jar When you use this option, the JAR file is the source of all user classes, and other user class path settings are ignored.

You can define the classpath dependencies in the Manifest metadata.

The easiest way to start your app is using the scala scripts:

scala -classpath target/scaaaaaaaaala-1.0.jar scaaalaaa.App Hello World!
