When trying to generate the forms traces into XML file, using the following steps:

- Unix

>PATH=$PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/jdk/bin ; export PATH 
>CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:$ORACLE_HOME/forms/java/frmxlate.jar ; export CLASSPATH  
> java oracle.forms.diagnostics.Xlate datafile=TraceFile.trc xmlfile=TraceOut.xml OutputClass=WriteOut 

- Windows

>set PATH=%PATH%;%ORACLE_HOME%/jdk/bin
>set CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;%ORACLE_HOME%/forms/java/frmxlate.jar 
>java oracle.forms.diagnostics.Xlate datafile=TraceFile.trc xmlfile=TraceOut.xml OutputClass=WriteOut


It fails with the error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: while resolving class: oracle.forms.diagnostics.Xlate
