How do I set the class path to include a new jar that I downloaded ? I do not know where to find the file that has the class path information. I have Visual Caf� Professional Edition Version 3.0C installed. I want to use the jar file that I down leaded when I am running java programs from Visual Caf� as well as when I am running a program from the dos prompt. Thanks in advance!
There is the additional difficulty of some IDE's completely ignoring system CLASSPATH settings. I know that JBuilder does not touch your Autoexec.bat (9x) or Environment Variables (NT). Everything is sent in on a -classpath switch to the jvm.
Cafe, if I remember right, completely stomps all over you autoexec.bat. It should set itself up, without you needing to change anything.
If you are using a different jar from somewhere, it depends on your IDE. For JBuilder, you would add a new Library. The library jars are what are added to the -classpath during compilation. But you would also have to set it manually in your OS classpath. For other IDE's, setting it up in your system should be ok.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
