ClassUtils.forName() has thrown a LinkageError

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException
Javadoc
Thrown when an application tries to load in a class through its string name using:
  • The forName method in class Class.
  • The findSystemClass method in class ClassLoader .
  • The loadClass method in class ClassLoader.

but no definition for the class with the specified name could be found.

As of release 1.4, this exception has been retrofitted to conform to the general purpose exception-chaining mechanism. The "optional exception that was raised while loading the class" that may be provided at construction time and accessed via the {@link #getException()} method is now known as the cause, and may be accessed via the {@link Throwable#getCause()} method, as well as the aforementioned "legacy method." @author unascribed @see java.lang.Class#forName(java.lang.String) @see java.lang.ClassLoader#findSystemClass(java.lang.String) @see java.lang.ClassLoader#loadClass(java.lang.String, boolean) @since JDK1.0

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError
Javadoc
Thrown if the Java Virtual Machine or a ClassLoader instance tries to load in the definition of a class (as part of a normal method call or as part of creating a new instance using the new expression) and no definition of the class could be found.

The searched-for class definition existed when the currently executing class was compiled, but the definition can no longer be found. @author unascribed @since JDK1.0

java.lang.LinkageError
Javadoc
Subclasses of {@code LinkageError} indicate that a class has some dependency on another class; however, the latter class has incompatibly changed after the compilation of the former class. @author Frank Yellin @since JDK1.0
