hi. i have the 1.4.1 sdk and i need to convert .ico files to something that the java compiler understands. I found a tool that does this but don't know how to include the class flies in the sdk so that i can use the third party tool at runtime. i imagine this is possible by move the thirdparty's class files to some appropriate spot in the java sdk but so far i haven't been able to do this successfully. thanks in advance. peter.

messy, very messy...
Far better to just set your classpath to include the required files.

you normally just add the jar file or classes to your classpath of your application. (e.g. start your prog with java -cp addOn.jar).You should never change the classes of the JDK when you aren't 100% sure you know what you are doing.
When you did this you can use any additional library.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
