Weird ClassNotFoundException in Java
It's OK, we all make embarrassing mistakes sometimes. The one I remember well is that I forgot one time that Class-Path attribute in manifest needs a space separated list of files, not semicolon separated like the one in -classpath switch. Took me a while to figure out what was wrong.

Since you are using Ant to compile your project, I can tell you about a nice trick. You can create manifest attributes directly in build.xml. Useful if you have few attributes because you don't have to make manifest file outside. Put something like this into <jar> task:

<attribute name="Main-Class" value="program.MainClass" />
<attribute name="Class-Path" value="File.jar OtherFile.jar" />
