Strange issue with relative path and third party jar. [message #1098192] Fri, 30 August 2013 19:01

I am having strange issue with eclipse 3.7.1 ( from Oracle Enterprise Pack for eclipse - OEPE). Issue is related to relative path.

Goal: Referencing a third party jar outside the project using relative path.

relative path is needed to obtain portability among two OS (Linux and Windows).

Issue: If relative path is used to the jar when there are other jars in the folder, a red x appears in the list of libraries (i.e. Project->Properties->Java Build Path->libraries). This x is followed by <Jar Name>-..resources\lib\thridParty\develop(missing).

What works:
1. Absolute path to the jar does not show the red x.
2. Relative path to the jar when there are no other jars in the folder works and does not show red x.
3. Project does not show compile errors.
