Note- This question was posted on Stackoverflow.com also - here
Please help me to solve this problem.

I manually copied the my sql connector jar to lib folder of my sql jdbc project. I had some old jars already in that folder and which were also easily added to build path before. Now, I forgot how i did it and i don't see that the lib folder when i try to add the jar to build path. How to do it ? I want my jar to be a part of my project and not lying in some random folder.

Right-click your project in the Package Explorer, select Properties, then Java Build Path, then Libraries, and click one of the buttons "Add JARs" or "Add External JARs".

I think this thread would fit better in our IDEs forum: moving.
