Hi all,
Does anyone know what jar I have to add to my build path in Eclipse to resolve this import....

Google suggests Apache Commons Collections
By the way, the package naming convention is to use a domain name for the first two packages, putting the top-level first. It is a simple way to provide a large name space and to provide hints as to where one could find a file. If, from your example, you pointed your browser at (the first two packages) and looked for a link to commons, then a link for collections, you'd be exactly where I linked above.

There is also the JAR Class Finder plug-in which can be really useful.

SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.3, SCBCD 1.3
