Hi guys, longtime lurker, first time poster!

I managed to get this tutorial on adding dynamic code to your Java application working correctly, . However, when i tried to adapt the code for my work i ran into this problem.

In the tutorial, the dynamic java file which the custom classloader uses, does not import any packages which is something i need to do. Hence, when i try to import a package, i get a compiler error "package xxx.yyy.zzz does not exist" even though the jars are in the project buildpath in eclipse.

Interestingly i do not get this error when i try to import classes from packages that are in the same src folder as my application in eclipse, or when i import standard Java classes like java.util etc. It's only external jars that i get this problem with.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
