This might seem like a silly question, but I've been feeling annoyed at not knowing what to do. I have imported a Maven project into Netbeans, and just purchased a commercial library for use (Incors' Alloy). I need to import the alloy.jar into my classpath. I installed it using the mvn install, but in Netbeans, a few java files that import the Alloy class give me a compilation error. I used to import jars into the Netbeans environment by just right clicking on project properties - Library -> and so on. But in this Maven project, no such option seems available! ANy ideas?
Much appreciated, thank you very much.
Actually it's quite easy to do it in NetBeans. I'm assuming that you use NetBeans 6.7.x that has good Maven support.
I hope you've already included the Incors' Alloy dependency in the pom.xml.
To install the JAR:
1. Right click on that Incors' Alloy JAR icon (the icon will look blurry, which means you don't have the JAR in your local repo) on the library section of your project. 2. Click Manually Install Artificat.
3. Select your JAR and provide all the information required.
Alternatively, you can do it from command line to install the JAR, e.g.
Hope it helps.

Just did that, and it works!
I guess I got to start paying more attention.
Thank you so much, Freddy!
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
