Looking at your -verbose info, it seems that you haven't included biss.zip
in your classpath (after or before classes.zip)

BTW, I think that java needs some ability to work with .zip files like
normal system with shared libraries (dll/so). With more and more general
packages like jgl, it would be tiresome to add them by hand to CLASSPATH.
They could be just put in one directory and loaded on request by some call
like System.loadZipLibrary("libname");
But I'm afraid that sun has to do this - maybe somebody can suggest this 
to them ? :)
