Eclipse - how to import classes?

I'm trying to get this
OSXadapter to work so my swing application can say "are you sure" before closing in OS X, like it does already in Windows.
I tried to import the classes with "import filesystem", and I can see the .class files in the "Navigator" view, but when I try to compile I get the error "package com.apple.eawt does not exist".
Any help will be appreciated.

Roy,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

I'm assuming you imported those classes into a new project. Did you update the build path of your Swing project to reference this new project?

1. Right-click on your project's icon
2. From the pop-up menu, select "Properties" (ALT+Enter)
3. In the properties dialog, select "Java Build Path"
4. Click on the "Libraries" tab
5. If the jar in question is part of your project directory tree, select "Add JARs...". If it is not, select "Add External JARs"

You can probably guess what comes next. Once you've added the JAR, it will show up in the list of jars and class folders. Select OK, and expect to be notified that the project must rebuild itself (in order to take advantage of your new definition).
