Hello:

I am responsible for an application which the developer did not build with ANT and also, he had the libraries sitting on his local machine.

Do you have any recommendations on what I should do with these libraries, knowing they were parcelled out and sitting on his local machine instead of in the project itself (Eclipse IDE workspace)?

I am a little confused by this and am building a script in ANT but don't really know what to do with his libraries. I did get a bunch of compilation errors earlier when I did not have the libraries, but now that I have them, I don't really know where to put them.

Any advice helpful.

Many Thanks,
Michele

You should Java Project -> Properties -> Java Build Path -> Add External Jars. The pathing doesn't matter as long as at runtime, the classloader can find them.
