Hi,

I have my Mockito Sample project as in Mockito1.jpg screenshot with 3 jars. I went to java build path and added one jar(mockito-all-1.10.19.jar) as in Mockito2.jpg

when i did that step under lib directory i see only 2 jars instead of 3 jars(as in attachment Mockito3.jpg

I wonder why lib folder only shows 2 instead of all 3 jars. please advise

It's a bit hard to tell just from those screenshots, but at a guess I would say that it doesn't show in the lib folder because it is now properly recognised by Eclipse and should actually show in the "Referenced Libraries" section. Just having the jar sitting in that "lib" folder doesn't make them visible to Eclipse. But what you did by adding it to the build path, makes it recognised by Eclipse and so for some reason, Eclipse must have decided to NOT show it in the lib folder because it does know about it and shows it in "Referenced Libraries" instead.

If your not sure what I am saying above, can you do the same set of screenshots but with the "Referenced Libraries" expanded and visible too.

"Referenced Libraries" section

how to check this?

In screenshots 1 and 3, find where it shows your "lib" folder. Now the first (or the second) item above that SAYS... "Referenced Libraries"   !!!!
