FIX: java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: EMPTY_ORDERED_ITE,
July 3, 2008 at 6:26 PM

After 4 comments and no solution I thought I'd help my fellow Java nerds out.

The exception is caused by an incorrect version of the commons collection library.

The library I used to correct the exception is "commons-collections-3.2.jar", which you can get at

Also to note, and as probably expected, you will need the library for the version of mysql you are using.

The version of mysql I use is 5.0, and the library I use is "mysql-connector-java-5.0.6-bin.jar", which you can get the latest driver at

Simply put the database library in one of locations on the server's classpath or in the application lib folder.
