    Default Import a library to Netbeans

    Hi guys,


    How can I import a library to Netbeans? I've tried everything I could think of; and didn't find a tutorial to walk me through it. The library I want to import is the ACM library from the Java Task Force.


    Thanks.
    -Mel

    Hello Melawe,
    i'm not sure if this is what you want but i'll give it a try since i did something similar with another library recently.
    Say you've created a project named myproject. Now you want to use the ACM package in that project.
    Under myproject there are some sub-directories,
    right click on Libraries directory. Now, a menu appears that offers
    Add Project
    Add Library
    Add jar/folder
    Properties
    Select Add jar/folder. Now, in your ACM file there must be a .jar file. You just have to locate where is this .jar file in the ACM.
    Hope it helps.

    All the files in the ACM lib are .java files. there are no class or jar files.

    EDIT__________
    Hey I tried compiling them to a .jar file and using it. It worked. Thanks.
