When you launch with -jar, the classpath is ignored and the jar content is used only.
See -jar documentation:
"When you use this option, the JAR file is the source of all user classes, and other user class path settings are ignored."

The application works fine in Eclipse.

In Eclipse, I created a jar file x.jar from the .class and a few .drl files, and copied x.jar to /tmp/x/

Now, in /tmp/x
   java -cp "$CP" -jar dpvt.jar par...
This fails on the first attempt to access any class from a drools jar file.

In /tmp/x, I unpack x.jar and call
   java -cp "$CP" rss.aws.init.Main par...

So, what is different when starting a Java program with java -jar as opposed
to java x.y.Main?

The stack dump is not very informative:

 Any ideas?
