I read this:

A .classpath file snippet that can be included in your project's .classpath has been provided here(ie, a link to a website). Please only use the classpathentry's you actually need (see below for details).

What do the above sentences mean ?
How do i add the snippet to the classpath in eclipse ?

Please help.

It's best to use Properties -> Java Build Path to maintain .classpath
instead of attempting to edit it by hand, at least early on.

The Java Build Path property page is used to edit the build classpath
for your project. You don't edit it directly. Eclipse maintains it for
you based on what you enter on the tabs of the property page.

Search for the Java Build Path Page in the Eclipse Help. That details
how to use the property page.
