I don't know of any IDE that does that out-of-the box. That kind of functionality belongs in a build tool, not an IDE.

Sounds to me like you need the functionality of the Maven 2 Assembly plugin. Get more information about Maven 2 at http://maven.apache.org/ , and the assembly plugin specifically at http://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-assembly-plugin/

You can use Maven 2, which is a build tool, with any IDE.

Sounds like what One-Jar does.

Well, Netbeans can out of the box http://netbeans.org/kb/articles/javase-deploy.html

Eclipse can with plugins, like the suggested One-Jar, which does the job quite humble.

But usually as your needs towards the build job may grow (run tests automatically, increase version numbers, generate release notes, etc.) you will want to use Maven, Ant or an other build tool alike. Then from my experience Eclipse has the wider plugin support, but Netbeans not far behind. There it seems a matter of taste, both get the job done.

From the link posted it sounds like the library dependencies are still packaged separately.

"type proto", please see the JavaRanch naming policy and change your display name to conform with this policy. Thanks!

(Also note that in general, posts should remain on-topic :)
