huh? you add the jar to the project jar files just like any other java project.

then you would have to package that into the files in your plugin update site such that they get deployed on the server with your plugin..(which builds a private local classpath)

Hi sam,

"you would have to package that into the files in your plugin update site"


Could you please be more precise on the above, i have added the jar to the plug in, once the site has been created how/where could the path of the jar can be added.

you would add the directory to the plugin publishing requirements, on the build tab of the plugin.xml.

then u would add that directory to the plugin classpath on the runtime tab of the plugin.xml.

you could add just individual files to the classpath as well.
