I believe you will need to setup a Project Dependency on your Build
Path. I'm copying the eclipse.webtools newsgroup on this as well, as I
know this has been answered there.

You might also want to take a look at the WTP FAQ and the Tomcat FAQ
(has some stuff not necessarily related to Tomcat).

Hi Paul/Dave,

Based on the description, it sounds like you want the contents of these
libraries (referenced on the project classpath in Eclipse) to be included in
the published/exported structure of the module. WTP does allow you to mark
library and container classpath entries for inclusion in the
published/exported structure of an EAR/WAR via the J2EE Module Dependencies
page (will be placed in the root of the EAR or WEB-INF/lib dir of the WAR).
See http://wiki.eclipse.org/ClasspathEntriesPublishExportSupport for details
on the current support and planned 3.0 enhancements.

Hope this helps,

Rob

Thank you both, that is indeed what I was wanting.

The only interesting thing JBuilder does is it actually extracts the
needed files out of the library and compiles it directly into the source.
I would imagine this would not be considered "Best-Practices" since its
essentially mixing code and will move to exporting the entire Library when
its needed instead.

You can get something similiar with Importing a WAR or EAR file, but
typically that is a messy situation.
