Can some >>please<< tell me the method to add a simple JAR file to JBuilder Classpath. I am new this IDE.
I have a JAR file which contains a single class Person.class. I used the following to generate it
jar -cvf Person.jar *.class
I can inspect the JAR frile either from jar -tvf Person.jar
or from winzip.
I then go into tools->configure libraries->New
I set the name I want "PersonJar" and try to point to the folder on ym machine that contains the jar file.

When I do so it says...."No new source, documentation, or class paths were found"

I can add other jar files like say activation.jar or some other jar file I know ot be good.

what is the problem?? How do I resolve it??

Any help greatly appreciated.
