Hi -

I have what is probably a fairly basic question, so I'm really hoping someone can help me out. but I've looked everywhere and can't find a satisfactory answer.

I'm trying to import a set of third party libraries - in this case htmlunit from Gargoyle Software. I followed the instructions to do so but it doesn't work.

I click on Build Path for the project and then add all the 'jar' files to my library.

I then include the relevant imports in my java code:


package com.srccodes.example;

import com.gargoylesoftware.*;


And it doesn't work!

It picks up* okay, but with com.gargoylesoftware.* it returns "the package ... is not accessible"

The odd thing is that with the autocomplete in the IDE, it is recognising the library, so it must be picking it up from somewhere.

Can anyone tell me what step I am missing?

Thanks so much!

It's this thing right?

So there is no com.gargoylesoftware Java package with Java classes. The ".*" does not import from subpackages; each needs to be imported separately.
