Where to add jar files to an Eclipse plug-in?

  • Open the META-INF/MANIFEST.MF file with the "Plug-in manifest editor" (available as a choice on right-click).
  • Go to the Runtime tab (tabs are at bottom)
  • In the right bottom corner, in the "Classpath" form, enter the jars.
    • Note: Each jar file much be added individually, it is not possible to just add a directory with jar files!
