For Java, before deploying your JAR files, you need to make sure that:

Click the Add Types button, and a new Select Compact Classes dialog box will open.
Against Library, click on "..." and select the required file which contains the classes. The classes will be listed from the selected assembly in the Loaded Class list box.
Select the desired classes, which you want to register with NCache for compact serialization, and click Add Classes.
