Hi, I'm fairly new to Java.... I know the language but not much else. I downloaded a google voice java api from the internet (Google Voice Java) and I want to be able to use it in eclipse. how would i go about adding it?

Here is one way:

Creata project (or you can use an existing project). Right-click the projectnd select Properties. Then in Java Build Path, select the Libraries tab. Click the Add button and browse to the JAR file for the Google Voice api. If there are multiple JARs, repeat thisfor each JAR.

That's it!
