    Default Best/easiest way to incorporate JasperReports via Eclipse? Is it possible?

    I want to create a project in Eclipse that will include a JasperReports element (at least one Jasper Report), so I need to access/include the JasperReports library files.

    Can I do this using the Libraries tab of the New Java Project dialog/wizard?

    If so, which of the following buttons should I use:

    Add Library...
    Add Class Folder...
    Add External Class Folder...

    ...or...?

    To add jar's onto the classpath of a project in eclipse use the add external jar button in the java build path section of the project properties. If this is something you think is specific to Jasper itself, you might find better luck on the support pages at jaspersoft.

    I'll try that, thanks; as for the JasperSoft forum*, of my 5 posts, although I've gotten 67 views, I've only had 1 reply, and that was from myself. Holy circular referential integrity (or lack thereof), Batman!
