                }         return event;         } } I have compiled the application with no errors. I have made a jar with manifest file containing the following: Main-Class: BeatBox My code file is: E:\BeatBox\BeatBox.java and the class files are also in the same folder. When I try to execute the jar file, I get an error: Could not find the main class: BeatBox. Please guide me as to how I can get my app running. Thanks! (General)
