When you run a JET Transformation from a workspace project, the JET engine
attempts dynamically loads the plug-in into the workbench. But, JET will not
attempt to dynamically load dependencies (such as your tag library). Here's
the sequence of events:
1) you run you JET transform.
2) JET engine realizes its the workspace, and attempts to load it via OSGi.
3) OSGi realizes the transform plug-in has an unresolved dependency on
org.test.customtags and fails the load of transform plug-in.
4) The message you are getting is a side effect of this failure - the engine
is reporting that it could not load a class out of the plug-in that failed
to load. I've submitted a bugzilla to make the error message better
But, the fact remains that the transformation plug-in won't load. You have
1) launch a run-time workbench that includes both you JET transformation and
your custom tags plug-in, and run your transformation there.
2) install you custom tags plug-in into your development workbench.
I would consider an enhancement to the JET engine to attempt to load
dependencies dynamically, but my sense is this could get very complex, very
quickly. It certainly won't happen for this release.
