    Default Where to place my own library?

    Hi
    I'm using Eclipse (on Ubuntu 11.04) and I created a new project that i called outofbox, in this project i created a new package that i called arrays in which i created a class called Arrays that has methods that perform certain operations on Arrays. I want to call this class from other projects, i must, i want to simply type sth like "import outofbox.array.Arrays;" in any class of a project im working on, where should I put this package?
    I hope i made my point clearly
    thanks for your help guys in advance

    Export your library as a jar. Then add that jar to the classpath of the project you wish to use it in.

    alright, so i edited my ~/.bashrc file and i added this :

     PATH=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.26/bin:/usr/bin
    export PATH
    CLASSPATH=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.26/bin:/usr/bin:/home/mohamed/workspace/arrays.jar
    export CLASSPATH
    how can I import it now?

    In eclipse, give your arrays.jar reference in the "reference libraries" and in the code you can import the classes in the jar file
