To run my testcase i have to provide two jars as -javaagent as VM arguments.
I am running the test case in eclipse.
If i have copied the jars to current project directory and MyProject/lib/my.jar and refer them as -javaagent lib/my.jar its working fine.
But i have the jars in another project in same eclipse workspace. but when i try refer them as -javaagent otherproject/lib/my.jar its giving an error "The jar file is not found: javaagent: otherproject/lib/my.jar" even i tried to give the exact path like..
-javaagent c:/somepath/workspace/otherproject/lib/my.jar still its not working.. is there any workaround for this. Due to some constraint i can not copy my.jar into current project...

Hope I am clear in explaining the problem...

I believe, you can set a project being dependent on another project in Eclipse. Please see the Project settings.

Not many get the right opportunity !
I agree. Here's the link:
