using external library

Hi,
I want to use external java library (http://jericho.htmlparser.net/docs/index.html).
How can I include it in the project?
I created lib folder, put there jar file, than I have added build path.
In class I have imported net.htmlparser.jericho.*;
But I'm getting an error:

SEVERE: Servlet.service() for servlet WebTools threw exception
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: net.htmlparser.jericho.Segment

Did I forget about something?

You need to add any necessary jericho jars to your classpath

i guess this is because the project needs to be a Dynamic Web Project and the library files needs to be in WEB-INF/lib folder

Yes, they should get deployed there if they're in the build path correctly

Is it possible to add it to the project somehow. Perhaps to pom.xml? I've tried that:
      
	<dependency>
		    <groupId>net.htmlparser.jericho</groupId>
		    <artifactId>jericho</artifactId>
		    <systemPath>${basedir}/lib/jericho-html-3.2.jar</systemPath>
		</dependency>

Open in new window

but with no success:/.

    <artifactId>jericho-html</artifactId>
    <version>3.1</version>
</dependency>

Open in new window
