Hi,

I am new to Java world and surely to eclipse, after years using Delphi. I am learning to become a real Java developer utilizing eclipse. In my starting pace I found so amuzed and also confused about Java. Every try to write a simple program I always use so many external JARs in my Java project. Is there any pitfall using exessive external JARs in a project ? And how can I know not to use certain external JAR without try-and-error removing one by one ?

Thanks in advance,
Zhou.X.B.

Don't worry about how many JAR files you end up using. Don't go out of
your way to add JARs unless you know you need them. Typically, you write
code based on what you learn from research and add the JARs you need.
Usually, you won't acquire a lot of unnecessary JARs, but even if you
do, it doesn't hurt (except for a bit of diskspace).

Later, you'll discover which JARs you did or didn't need.

In short, don't worry about this. Just move ahead. You're on the right
track since you chose Java in the first place.

Thanks Bateman, it's realy encouraging.
By the way, how can I download the Eclipse HTML Help Center ? My eclipse installation lack of "Platform Plug-in Developer Guide".
