When I do an Import -> File System and import a JAR into my /WEB-INF/lib folder, would it not seem resonable that Eclipse should also add this jar to the Build Path of the project?
As it is now, I have to not only import that JAR file into the folder, but then I have to add that JAR to the build path.
Anyone know why this isn't automatic?

Gregg read this post..I found on Jrooler.com(the javalobby.org weblog hoster)
http://www.jroller.com/page/aspinei/20031004#ant_goodies_extracting_info_from
Is there any way to work backwards from ant and read the web-inf/lib directory for jars and add them to build path as an ant task?
if done that way it would be IDE independent..just my 2 cents
