java version used is JDK5 and JAVA_HOME points to jdk5/jre which has
jce.jar in lib directory. So, I assume that elipse should pick up the
cryptographic classes.

I am also sure that the PDE Build runs on jre 1.5 since we have a number
of java 5 features of EMF and the build was running successfully earlier

I am wondering why PDE cannot pick up these classes now?

Any help is highly appreciated!!

I had a similar problem with a headless PDE build I have for an RCP application (product file based). In the file I added jce.jar to the JRE location to compile against.

JavaSE-1.6=${java.home}/lib/rt.jar;${java.home}/lib/jsse.jar ;${java.home}/lib/jce.jar
