    Default [Solved] NetBeans - Importing an HTML based API Library

    Hello all, I'm having trouble with figuring out how I can import certain API docs into netbeans and be able to use the methods and classes that the API defines. The API docs Im trying to import are html files.

    Here is the link to the web based version of the API library:

    Generated Documentation (Untitled)

    and here is a link to the downloadable version:

    http://web.archive.org/web/200507061...rn_api.1.5.zip


    Thank you for any help that can be provided.

    Hello Khalon!
    For an external java library it works like this: Say you've created a project named "myproject". Now you want to use the an external library 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 library's file there must be a .jar file. You just have to locate where is this .jar file in the external library's file.
    Note: I haven't tried to import html files, maybe you need to select another option.
    Hope it helps.
