Why I need to add some .jar to the Java Build Path ? [message #925335] Thu, 27 September 2012 16:18 Go to next message

there is a thing I don't understand on Eclipse 4.2.0.

If I try to import this:
import org.eclipse.emf.ecore.xmi.impl.XMIResourceFactoryImpl;
I need to add to the Java Build Path the Library corresponding :
Right click > Properties > Libraries > Add External JARs...

But if I try to import something else:
import org.eclipse.emf.ecore.resource.Resource;
I don't need to add something to the Java Build Path...

Why the behavior of Eclipse is different in the second case?

Thank you.

The EMF's EMF ecore XMI plugin isn't on your plugin's "required" plugins
list. You probably have the EMF resources plugin in required list (or
inherited from a required plugin that exported it). They are different
plugins. You don't need to have both as a required, and if you don't
require it then it won't be available.

Or if you are doing straight non-Eclipse java you have resources jar in
your classpath already (or inherited it through a pre-req export).
