Hi,

I have an application that uses over 50 libs that are currently in the eclipse classpath for it.  I need to figure out which jars are actually compile time and which ones are runtime since the end product is going to change significantly if i can filter it out.

How do i do this process? say im looking at, say im looking at xalan-2.7.0.jar ... I dont know where it is used.  How do i make an assumption on if its runtime requirement or compile time?

Thanks

remove them all from your build path and add them back in as required to resolve the compile errors
theres no automated way

You can determine the runtime requirement by using  -verbose:class as an argument to java.exe. Compile time should be discernible from your import statements
