Thank you so much for the Eclipse project. I was really hesitant to step into Java for the longest time and your great IDE has made is painless - it's almost fun to code!

I have a java project written in Eclipse that uses some native libraries (RXTX for serial comm). The number one complaint I get from users is that it's too hard to start the app, even with startup scripts (.so on linux/osx, .bat on windows)

I'd really like to be able to export and either

a) get a single jar file that contains all the native libraries and figures out which one to use at the right time


b) have one jar for each platform that contains it's specific libraries

In a perfect world these would be generated when I hit "save", not when I export.

Which of these desires is most realistic and how to I achieve it?

FWIW, the project is:

Thank you!
