Re: [equinox-dev] How can I embed a JAR in a plugin?

David,

If I understand your problem correctly, you're trying to include this
third party jar in your Eclipse target platform so that it can be used
by plugin projects in your workspace. If this is the case, you're
running into the fact that Eclipse PDE doesn't support developing
against bundles with embedded jars.  This is not Equinox's problem,
but rather a side effect of PDE being dependent upon the JDT, and
JDT's inability to find a class that's within an embedded jar.


Just wanted to clarify myself: PDE supports developing against bundles with embedded jars, just not if the bundle is itself a jar. The bundle must be exploded into a directory.
