That line refers to NetcdfFileCache, which you can verify is in
netcdf-2.2.16.jar. Could there be an older version of the nj22 library
somehow in your classpath?

Last December I ran in to a dependency problem in netcdf-2.2.10.jar.
That problem seems to be still in netcdf-2.2.16.jar. The current
version of the exception is:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError
So your NCdump.java line 189 seems to be referring to a class that
wasn't included in the .jar file but should have been.
Your solution last December was to use the toolsUI-2.2.10.jar. That
worked then, so I will try to use toolsUI-2.2.16.jar now and hope that
fixes the problem.
There is also something about NetcdfFileCache in the email below (the
same problem?). But I don't know about that now because I don't use
It would be great if you could fix this problem.
Here is the original email from around 2005-12-07:

Yes. Why isn't NetcdfFileCache being seen? I tried moving the
netcdf-2.2.10.jar reference to the beginning of the class path for the
compiler and Java. I still get the same error message. The source code
files and the older netcdf.jar are not in the class path (and the
files aren't in those directories either). And jikes and java are
clearly using 2.2.10, because I initially had several compiler errors
which forced me to switch to methods new to 2.2.10; those methods run
correctly when I run my test program; except for the problem with
class loader problem? I haven't had a class loader problem before. So
far, I'm just running this code on my computer (Windows XP Pro,
service pack 2), not on our Linux web server.
Please see additional comments below.
