NoClassDefFoundError when trying to run JUnit TestSuite

A coworker is trying to run a JUnit TestSuite and he's getting the
following error in the JUnit test runner console:

Failed to invoke suite():java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError

No other information is given, which makes it rather hard to determine
what the problem is.

Ciao,
Gordon

NoClassDefFoundError is often caused by an exception during a static
initializer, either a static{} block or a static variable initialized with
its declaration, "static Foo f = ...". It seems to me that before JDK 1.4,
you got a more meaningful message for those but maybe that's just my memory
going. :)

Of course it's also possible that you're missing a library or something but
I assume you checked that...
