I always have classpath problem in Eclipse 3.1. I want to import a pure ant project into a "java project" in Eclipse. Then I set a "lib" directory as library folder. For example, in the above ant task, it will be a big job to copy all jars in Spring to this "lib".

Now I am wondering, is it possible to set a variable in classpath, like


How to do this? I hope I make myself clear.

Thanks.
