hello everybody

I've just joined the bandwagon and I am learning java
Not having a strong IT background I've read 2 books so far
I am quite thrilled at the idea of developing my first UI.


I stumble on Substance which looks very cool and I'd like to use it.
however I dont really understand how to make it work in Eclipse. (the instructions on the website are for more "advanced" developers )

has anyone tried to setup substance in Eclipse before and can help me with it please?

thanks!

I take it, you already have seen this article on how to get started with Substance LAF.

To add the substance.jar to your classpath from eclipse
1) Create new eclipse project for which you are planning to use the substance LAF
2) Right click project->Properties
3) Java Build Path->Libraries tab
4) Click add external jars and navigate and point to the substance.jar saved on your disk
5) If you have saved the jar in your project itself, click add jars instead and follow the same process.
