Java: NPE, when running jar on other system having sikulixapi.jar packed with the jar

Asked by shadab on 2016-01-11

I Installed sikulix in my system with option 2...i used the generated api to develop my selenium script....Then i exported my project into runnable jar file with all the external jars attached.....
Then i installed sikulix using 2nd option in another system...also using windows

and then i tried to run the exported jar file in the new system...But getting error :

 :Exception in thread "main" java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException...Caused by : java.lang.Null pointer Exception

I guess this is a bug (I never tested this option).

workaround:
- do not pack sikulixapi.jar with your app jar
- copy sikulixapi.jar to the other system to any place you like (must be same system type!)
- at runtime of your app jar have a pointer to sikulixapi.jar in your class path

So sorry ..for a very basic question.....
How can i perform the last step....
-at runtime of your app jar have a pointer to sikulixapi.jar in your class path

i am running the jar file in cmd using the command : java -jar pathofjar
