Package application Jar with liraries included in Eclipse

Hi. I am using Eclipse Galileo for my development, and I am using LWUIT for my GUI stuff. from what I have read I have to deploy the application as a single jar, so I would have to somehow bundle the libraries with my own classes in a single jar. When I right-click on a Java ME project, I can choose "Create a package" from one of the submenus, but this seems to only package my jar, without the libraries. Is there a way to change this in eclipse, or do I have to do it manually / antenna?

* I wasn't sure where to put this thread, as it could as well be put in the Eclipse forum. Sorry if I posted it in the wrong place.

This is the right place. I doubt that many general Eclipse users would have understood the way J2ME projects are organized and built.

Ok, found it. The short answer is: Build Path -> add the required library or project -> Order and Export tab -> make sure the checkbox is selected!

If anyone is interested, here is the source:
