There are some third party jars that my RCP needs. I wanted to use the .exe that the product export wizard creates.

My 3rd party jars location not fixed and also frequently getting updated.So i can not create plug-in for dependent jars since we have to create plug-in for 3rd party jars each time when any jar get updated.

I have added below relative path in MANIFEST.MF

Bundle-ClassPath: .,

Any idea how I can specify the classpath for the exe so that exe could pick up above relative path?

Is there any way so that we can integrate the 3rd party jars from changing location?

You can use the external keyword in Bundle-ClassPath in your own bundle that exports the packages of your 3rd party jars to pick up jars installed elsewhere on your system. See

That would make them available to your RCP app, no?
