I'm a new Java Developer. I'm using Eclipse 3.5 Galileo (Mac, Java 1.6) to build a sample project and am trying to use the Base64 class that lives in org.apache.commons.codec.binary.Base64 package. Shouldn't this codec library already available for me to use? If not, how can I install it locally? Where do I drop the source files in my folder structure?

Sorry for the newbie questions here.

When I build my project I get the following error:



HTTP ERROR 500

Problem accessing /index.jsp. Reason:

    org/apache/commons/codec/binary/Base64

Caused by:

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/commons/codec/binary/Base64
