Adding Jar Files to the Build Path [message #968547] Fri, 02 November 2012 10:49 Go to next message

I am writing a java program and want to include 30 or so jar files in the class path.

When I go to Project/Properties/Java Build Path/Libraries I can add jar files one at a time. Is there a way I can indicate that all the jar files in a particular folder are to be included in the build?

Thanks in advance.

Choose the option just below "Add JARs..." which is "Add External JARs.." and shift-click or ctrl-click the jars you want added. That's how I add multiple jars.

I'm pretty new to eclipse so if there is a better way then I would like to know too. Very Happy

If you have a set of disparate JARs that you keep wanting to add to new
projects you're creating frequently, there's a concept of User Library
you can use to create the collection, then you just add that collection
each time.

However, this method plays havoc with .classpath and version-control
systems since it always results in external (non-workspace) paths.
