3rd party jars, referenced library issue

Posted on 2013-01-05

Hi there;

I have used several 3rd party jar libraries in my project and I want to have those in my project folder while sharing with a friend.

When I check my project folder, I don't see those jar files. How can I include those jar files in eclipse so that my friend can run the project without any changes?


P.S. For clarification, I want to share the "code and jars".

have you tried it with maven dependency management?

usually eclipse takes the jars with the project, but sometimes its possible that you have to add them manually.

if you use maven as dependency management tool you can save time by just hitting a button "Update Dependencies"...

OK thanks but i created a lib folder and put the 3rd party jars in that folder and add jars to build path from that lib folder.

Adding an internal folder solves the problem.
