I think this is what you wanted:

A little more complex than some, perhaps. I use it on a project that pulls in all the JDO jars (wildcard in directory) plus selected explicitly-named jars. The other class path definition being pulled in (the one named "classpath") mostly references stuff that's already in a prototype web app that will be copied/merged to build the working web app.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
