Making a JAR available to project from plugin? [message #63869] Tue, 02 June 2009 17:09 Go to next message

Hi Folks,

I'm writing my first plugin and it has a number of components. One is a
wizard that helps set up the data. That's all working great. The second
is a couple of packages of .class files that use the data.

I know how to use the Project->properties to include the jar that contains
these classes in my project, but that would involve distributing the JAR
twice, ocen as part of the plugin for the wizard to use and ocne as a
straight jar to be included in the project's properties.

That seems kind of wasteful as well as kludgy. Is there a way to make the
JAR that is in the plugin's code automatically part of a project generated
with the plugins project wizard? If not is there some other way to
package it with the plugin so it can be found and used by a project
created by that project wizard?

Thanks

JK

Minor UPdate:

Oka, it seems to me other plugins such as the web plugin add libraries to
the list of libraries available in the
Proepties->JavaBuildPath->Libraries->AddLibrary... list.

Whats the black magic to do this?

Hi Jeffrey,

Do you generate the JARs or are these JARs third party Jars? Where do they
come from?
