I am creating a standalone java application in eclipse, and i want to create jar file of that application, i want directory structure for my app as
- MyApp.jar
- Input (folder)
-- file
-- file
- Lib (folder)
-- lib1.jar
-- lib2.jar
(path of Lib folder can change in future) so how to create jar of app such that i can modify classpath to point to new Lib (folder) location without creating new jar every time Lib (folder) path changes and how to set file path ?

I think you should use Ant to package a jar file with such structure. Then add Ant build file to project's builders in Eclipse.
