How to access Java3D classes (in JBuilder environment)

I've installed the Java3D package
(installation file: java3d-1_2_1_03-win32-opengl-sdk.exe), but when I compile an example program using the package, I get errors telling me that classes under the following packages cannot be accessed:

import com.sun.j3d.utils.applet.MainFrame;
import com.sun.j3d.utils.geometry.ColorCube;
import com.sun.j3d.utils.universe.*;
import javax.media.j3d.*;
import javax.vecmath.*;

The packages are all part of Java3D.

My JBuilder 4 says it uses the following JDK: "java 1.3.0-C". My OS is Win98 SE.

I'd appreciate clear instructions on how to get JBuilder to find the Java3D packages and files. :)

You need to append the jar files to your classpath.

As my operating system is Windows 98, I don't have a CLASSPATH variable.

Can it be specified somewhere in Win 98?!

The solution was the following:

1) Extract all the Java 3D files into JAVA.HOME/lib/ext.

2) Include the extracted files as a required library in JBuilder ("Project Properties" -- "Required Libraries" -- "Add...").

Simple after all.

Hi raives.

An easier way is to use "Tools | Configure Libraries | New" to get the New Libraries Wizard.  You do not have to extract files from the jar files and it will be able to use documentation and source code as well.

Thanks.

Note, however, the jar files don't need to be extracted in my solution either.
