Add external jar as dependency - NoClassDefFoundError in Forge 1.16

Recommended Posts

I have tried all imaginable configurations in order to load an external jar to my mod.

Forge version: 1.16

IDE: IntelliJ

Java: 11.0.11 for building and running

 

On 1.12 version I used to simply add the jars to the build.gradle with the `compile files()` command and then add them to the mods folder together with the mod jar. It used to work. But now it seems it cannot find the jars anymore. I'll post the logs at the end. Even more I scanned for IO access from the java (procmon) and I can't see it trying to read any file when the function containing the external reference is called (I suppose it loads the jar on request).

I admit I am confused about all the maven and "libraries" vs "libs" features. I noticed that everything in META-INF in src/main/resources is automatically included in the final jar. But if this is supposed to happen what's with all the maven? Isn't maven supposed to automatically download jars from some public repository/local repo when needed? Why bundle it in the jar and then require the special .meta files just to make it work?

Here's what I tried for the build.gradle. I tried many different configurations but the uncommented one is aproximatelly what worked in the past.

buildscript {
    repositories {
        maven { url = 'https://maven.minecraftforge.net' }
        mavenCentral()

    }
    dependencies {
        classpath group: 'net.minecraftforge.gradle', name: 'ForgeGradle', version: '4.1.+', changing: true
    }
}

repositories {

    mavenLocal()
    mavenCentral()


    flatDir {
        dirs 'C:\\MinecraftForge\\Forge1.16\\src\\main\\resources\\META-INF\\libraries'
    }

}

configurations {
    inJar
}
configurations.compile.extendsFrom(configurations.inJar)

dependencies {
	// Old fashioned way that worked before
    compile files("libs/automaton.jar","libs/xeger.jar")

	// Tried the maven public repository - I am afraid that this old library could actually contain malware
     // implementation group: 'nl.flotsam', name: 'xeger', version: '1.0.0-lorislab-1'

     // Seen this on another forum - adding the jars to the maven with the .maven file and including for the local repo
     //inJar 'com.lumieresombre.lib:xeger:1.0.0'
     //inJar 'com.lumieresombre.lib:automaton:1.0.0'

		// Something else I tried. Didn't work. Could
//    compile "com.lumieresombre.lib:xeger:1.0.0"
//    compile "com.lumieresombre.lib:automaton:1.0.0"

}

// Example for how to get properties into the manifest for reading by the runtime..
jar {
    from(configurations.inJar) {
        into 'META-INF/libraries'
    }

    manifest {
        attributes([
            "Specification-Title": "examplemod",
            "Specification-Vendor": "examplemodsareus",
            "Specification-Version": "1", // We are version 1 of ourselves
            "Implementation-Title": project.name,
            "Implementation-Version": "${version}",
            "Implementation-Vendor" :"examplemodsareus",
            "Implementation-Timestamp": new Date().format("yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ssZ"),
            "ContainedDeps":"automaton-1.0.0.jar xeger-1.0.0.jar"
        ])
    }
}

// Example configuration to allow publishing using the maven-publish task
// This is the preferred method to reobfuscate your jar file
jar.finalizedBy('reobfJar') 
// However if you are in a multi-project build, dev time needs unobfed jar files, so you can delay the obfuscation until publishing by doing
//publish.dependsOn('reobfJar')

publishing {
    publications {
        mavenJava(MavenPublication) {
            artifact jar
        }
    }
    repositories {

        maven {
            url "file:///${project.projectDir}/mcmodsrepo"
        }
    }
}

 

I read here about inserting all the jars in the libraries folder and that the mod loader will take care of everything. I am not sure if it still exists in the 1.16

The mod jar did get large but gave the same error.

 

Then I read about moving the libs to maven. I tried this variant using a local repo aka flatDir. Here you can see my confusion: I pointed the flatDirs to the libraries folder which already contained the needed .meta files. This gave the same result.

Then I read that I can specify the dependencies in the jar classpath/manifest. I am not sure if I should have copied the file to the final jar path or if it was included in the file.

What should I do? I just want to drop the jars near the mod file and make it work.

 

The error log:

https://pastebin.com/KJF37fZ6

 

And here's the code around the line of the crash:

    protected void init() {
        // Create the options row list
        // It must be created in this method instead of in the constructor,
        // or it will not be displayed properly

                this.height - OPTIONS_LIST_BOTTOM_OFFSET,
                OPTIONS_LIST_ITEM_HEIGHT
        );

        // Add the options row list as this screen's child
        // If this is not done, users cannot click on items in the list
        this.children.add(this.optionsRowList);

                    Xeger generator = new Xeger(GeneralConfig.get().username_generator);
                    String result = generator.generate();

                    Main.ReflectionChangeUsername(result);
                },
                (unused, option) -> new StringTextComponent("Username: "+Minecraft.getInstance().getUser().getName())
        );

        SliderPercentageOption attackProbability=new SliderPercentageOption(
                "Attack Probability",
                // Range: 0 to width of game window
                0.0, 100,
                // Steps
                0.5F,
                // Getter and setter are similar to those in BooleanOption
                unused -> GeneralConfig.get().constants.hit_probability,
                (unused, newValue) -> GeneralConfig.get().constants.hit_probability=newValue,
                // BiFunction that returns a string text component
                // in format "<name>: <value>"
                (gs, option) -> new StringTextComponent("Probability: "+GeneralConfig.get().constants.hit_probability)
        );


        this.optionsRowList.addBig(usernameChanger);

        this.optionsRowList.addBig(attackProbability);


        // Add the "Done" button
        this.addButton(new Button(
                (this.width - BUTTON_WIDTH) / 2,
                this.height - DONE_BUTTON_TOP_OFFSET,
                BUTTON_WIDTH, BUTTON_HEIGHT,
                // Text shown on the button
                new TranslationTextComponent("gui.done"),
                // Action performed when the button is pressed
                button -> this.onClose()
        ));


    }

Yes finally. I took some suggestions from here

The libraries are now embedded and loaded on runtime.

I used embed and works perfectly. This is the final configuration:

 

buildscript {
    repositories {
        maven { url = 'https://maven.minecraftforge.net' }
        mavenCentral()

    }
}
apply plugin: 'net.minecraftforge.gradle'
// Only edit below this line, the above code adds and enables the necessary things for Forge to be setup.
apply plugin: 'eclipse'
apply plugin: 'maven-publish'
