    Default new HttpClient(); Setting the classpath with correct files

    I'm a new member in here, but i'm going to be active user, so if i notice i can help someone, i'll do that!
    Ya, hi everyone!

    This is what i'm trying to do:
    HttpClient - HttpClient Tutorial (And the code isn't a problem for me, but setting (HttpClient client = new HttpClient(); to work is)

    I've had big difficulties with HttpClient and it's dependencies. I have tried to add it's libraries to Eclipse by adding the jar-files (HttpClient - Dependencies) to Java build-path. I can find tutorials that explains nicely how to use the library, but i have no clue how to set it up. Can some smarter person explain it to me step by step: 1. open your eclipse, 2. open new java project. 3. now click the right mouse button on your project folder and go to propetities... Please! I've tried it many ways myself, but for some reason i cant get it work. Platform is windows.

    Sorry for my english skills, working on it!

    Where is the class: HttpClient defined? If it is in a jar file the compiler must know where to find the jar file.
    I don't know how to tell your IDE how to find jar files. You will have to look at the IDE's doc or ask the question in the IDE section of the forum.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
