Just in the same way a maven project requires dependencies, I have an eclipse project that depends on another project which has generated 2 library files.

How would I include these library files or include the project as a reference in order to have a successful build?

The context menu for a Java project has a Properties... which brings up a dialog that includes "Java Build Path" where you can control the project's build path, which is stored in <project-name>/.classpath, i.e., as a hidden file nested in the workspace project that you can unhide using Filters... in the view menu, i.e., the little triangle button in the view.

thanks for your response. I was able to generate the jar file from the other project and add it to my build path as a referenced library. Unfortunately errors still persist in that for some reason some methods from those classes are not visible to the project and producing errors like;

Description	Resource	Path	Location	Type
The method acccccc from the type Exxxxxxxxx refers to the missing type _ccccccc	Eccccccccn.java	/framework/src/com/

	line 186	Java Problem

The Java Build Path property page lets you add a project as a direct dependency, without having to export it to a jar.

Nitin, thanks for responding. I tried both; I went under project reference in build path config and checked the project there. It did not work and thus added the jar as well to try and get this to work.
