I'm writing a plugin for a software in eclipse. I'm using vtd-xml.jar for importing an xml file. I have added to the build path by rigt clicking on the paroject and selecting the opetion add to build path. While I do the operations from eclipse it is working fine but when I make a jar file and install it in the software then I'm getting an exception with vtd-xml.jar as class not found. Is there something that I have to do while making a jar file when installed in main software?

To use that jar from an ordinary Java application (ie not in Eclipse) you should place a copy of it somewhere in the system classpath


thanks a lot, can you please explain a bit more for me so that I can work it out?

this would be very helpful


I'm posting from my phone and the details are a little iffy but ...

If you right-click on your project folder
Java build-Path
The 2nd tab .. There should be options to add internal and external .jar files.


yes I did that, that's how I make it work in my eclipse but unable to make it work when I make a jar and install it in the main software
