    Nice and helpful blog.

    I had tried working on the masthead and getting missing jar.

    Have you added external jars after importing the war file?

      HI Tisha,

      Try to deploy and preview the war file after modification.If it is working then no need to consider  NWDS errors. In my case it was working with out extra jar files.
