Sounds like a classloader issue. This will probably require some trial
and error to see why the jCIFS handler isn't installed or isn't available
through whatever class loader. Try jCIFS 0.8 with the new version of
TC. Try the old version of TC with the new version of jCIFS. Etc.

If you try to create an smb URL do you get a protocol handler exception?
