<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<classpath>
    <classpathentry kind="src" path="src"/>
    <classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.jdt.launching.JRE_CONTAINER/org.eclipse.jdt.internal.debug.ui.launcher.StandardVMType/JavaSE-1.7"/>
    <classpathentry kind="lib" path="lib/mysql-connector-java-5.1.14-bin.jar"/>

You just go on your program you want to build as .jar.
Go File>Export>Runnable Jar and then you have options how to pack it...
Find what you want and it will automaticly include jdbc.driver in your .jar package...
