Adding libraries

I would like to download the ACM Java Libraries but I'm not sure where to place them on my MAC, what is the correct folder/directory?

Thanks in advance,

Welcome to JavaRanch.

If you want them always available, no matter what Java process you're running, you can put them into /Library/Java/Extensions

Otherwise, just store them in some convenient directory, and reference them using the "-classpath" switch whenever you need to.
