It happens occassionally that the wrong class is reported with a 
NoClassDefError. This is not a Equinox/OSGi bug, but an issue in the JVM.

In the class reported having a problem, start looking for classes that it 
references indirectly via 
 - super class
 - implements
 - members
 - method arguments and return types

And stuff those in turn are referencing in the same manner.

I also suggest that you run Peter Kriens' BND tool on your bundle, which will 
pin-point the problems for you. See http://www.aqute.biz/Code/Bnd
If you use Maven, then BND is built into the Maven Bundle Plugin, which is 
available from Apache Felix project.
