Hi ,
I am totally new to this NetBeans IDE. So please help me out for the same.
Actually I have got both the .jar files( mail.jar and activation.jar), which are required to implement the JavaMail API.
But unfortunately I don't know how to go about it.
I mean where to put those JAR files.
Its showing compile time error at the following import statements:

import javax.mail.*;
import javax.mail.internet.*;
import javax.activation.*;

I got to know from somewhere that CLASSPATH is supposed to be set for these two JAR files..
But I don't know how to set the classpath in the NetBeans 4.1..
I tried to set the CLASSPATH in the catalina.bat file, which is under C:\NetBeans4.1\enterprise1\jakarta-tomcat-5.5.7\bin\catalina.bat

But unfortunately its not working...

please help me out as quickly as possible.

Thanking in anticipation..

For running the app as a standalone (outside of your IDE) put the jars under WEB-INF/classes.
In order to compile with Netbeans, you'll need to mount each jar.
You do this the same way you mount a filesystem, from the File Explorer pane.

There is an IDE forum on this site.
If have problems with this, they could probably help you troubleshoot the Netbeans issues better than we could.
