How to I include one directory (containing either .java or .class files) from another java project into my current project?

I can include the entire other project, but this is way more than I need. I've tried adding class folders in the project properties, but this doesn't work.I've also tried "Project -> Properties -> Source Tab -> Link Source ... but it doesn't work (ie can't find package specified in import statement)

At least one problem is that, linking the source as above, it puts the directory that is linked to under the default package in the current project, and of course the source code has its own package path the conflicts with this, and it doesn't allow renaming the package when linking to the source.

You can setup a project dependency to get access to the classes in the other
project. On the project that needs to see the other one, open up the
Project Properties. Go to the Java Build Path page and select the Projects
tab. Select the other project as a dependency.

David,

Thanks for your reply.

I understand that I can select the entire project, but that is not what I am looking for. I want to include only certain directories or files from another project. Since I've posted, I've learned how to do this. You select the entire project (as you've said) but then then "Include" only those packages or files desired.

Thanks,
Al
