Eclipse Build Path question

From Eclipse, I go to the following menu path

   Rt click on Project-->Build Path-->Configure Build Path

Open in new window


From there I see something like:

  + JRE System Library

Open in new window


... and if you click on the plus sign, you see all of the jars underneath that

So what I want to do is to add an entire directory of jar files

So I hit "Add External Jars"  (as my notes tell me)

and I enter the directory name into the "File name" " box.

This opens up all the jars contained within the directory, and allows me to enter them one by one, and I see something like

  + JRE System Library
  + jar1
  + jar2
  + jar3

Open in new window


But what I want to do is to place the entire directory into the
build path, and have the jars be underneath the directory name,
so that I would see something like:

  + JRE System Library
  + dir
    jar1
    jar2
    jar3

Open in new window


So I am trying to figure out how to do that

Maybe I could use "Add Library", but I do not know which library type to use

How can I perform this ?

Thanks

Add Library is what you need yes. Basically all you do is give a name to a whole bunch of jars collected under the same umbrella
