Where do the default run configuration dependencies come from? I have a simple Java project that uses external jars that have been through a few versions. I removed the old versions from my build path in the project, but they keep showing up in my run configurations. I can manually delete them from the run configurations, but I'm baffled as to why they keep showing up.

Thanks for any input you can provide.

Run Configuration derives the initial dependencies from the Build path of the Java Project. But if the dependencies are modified by the user in the run configuration, then it honours that and does not recalculate the dependencies from the build path. For the modified list, user will have to manually delete the unwanted dependencies.

I figured out what was going on. I updated ProjectA from ExternalLibVersion6.jar to ExteralLibVersion8.jar. But ProjectA's build path also includes ProjectB, which includes ExternalLibVersion6.jar. So even when I created a brand new run configuration within ProjectA, ExternalLibVersion6.jar would show up as a dependency - and it would show up first, which caused all sorts of confusion.

I was looking all over in the config for ProjectA trying to figure out where I missed ExteralLibVersion6.jar, and didn't even think that it would have anything to do with ProjectB.

Thanks for taking the time to think about it.
