GWT: getting java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError on server side

I am using GWT2.6. On my gwt server side, I am trying to instantiate a class which is from another eclipse project. I added that project into my "Java Build Path". However I am still getting

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError
issue.

My code and error message is pasted below.

My code:

public class OnboardingToolServiceImpl extends RemoteServiceServlet implements OnboardingToolService {

private String[] dmobArgs;

private void initializeDmob(){
dmobArgs = new String[]{"-U", "xx", "-P", "xx1234", "-S", "default", "-R", "suite-test", "-c", "c:\\xx\\xx\\xx\\cfg\\ConfigServer.cfg", "-o", "list"};
}

@Override
public List<ProductDefinition> getProducts() {
System.out.println("Server: dmobArgs");
DMOBApp.main(dmobArgs); //dmobArgs
System.out.println("Server: done");
List list = new LinkedList();

ProductDefinition stock = new ProductDefinition("stock","xx","aa","","","","");
ProductDefinition cash = new ProductDefinition("cash","xx","aa","","","","");
ProductDefinition bond = new ProductDefinition("bond","xx","aa","","","","");
ProductDefinition stock1 = new ProductDefinition("stock1","xx","aa","","","","");
ProductDefinition stock2 = new ProductDefinition("stock2","xx","aa","","","","");
ProductDefinition cash1 = new ProductDefinition("cash1","xx","aa","","","","");
list.add(stock);
list.add(cash);
list.add(bond);
return list;
}
}

Answer

It's not enough to add it to the build path. You must also add it to /WEB-INF/lib folder. Otherwise, it won't be available on the server side.

If you use Eclipse, select the project and look into the Problems tab. You should see a message there that a resource is not going to be available on the server. Right click on this message and select "Quick Fix". Select "Copy..." option.
