Hi,
I'm sorry for this basic question....
I built a jar file , and now I want to add it to another java project.
I'm using Eclipse. I added that jar to the project and added it to the class path.
How can I call it's methods from my new class in the new project ?
Thanks.

Simply import the classes you intend to use in the .jar.

When you are not using Eclipse, you will have to use the -cp options for the java tool, or add the classpath to the manifest file in a new jar file.

Hi,
I added to the folder of my project the file hasp.jar.
I added it to the class path (with eclipse)
I write import hasp and it does nothing.
Even my jar's main class name doesn't work.

Without knowing more about how you're doing this it'll be hard to help.

If the library is included in the project's path then importing a class and using it will work fine: could you include the relevant portions of source (the import, how you're trying to use the import) and the specific error you get?

Hi,
I added again the jar to the classpath and now it looks fine.
I don't know what is different...
Thanks anyways.
