I just started a Java programming course, and I want to install some new classes to use in my programs. How and where do I install the .class files? All I have is a folder full of the .class files and the documentation.

Thanks.

classes

They are predefined classes to use in programs. I'm using Project Builder right now, because it was already installed. Anyone know where to put class files so Project Builder can use them when compiling a program?

Is JCreator available for OS X?

Well if anyone is wondering y

Well if anyone is wondering you just drop the files into the /Library/Java/Extensions folder. OS X knows to look there for anything you type in source code.

Yeah, so the files don't actu

Yeah, so the files don't actually go there.

If anyone finds out where to store predefined packages for Java so Project Builder can access them tell me. I've since moved to BlueJ but I'm not a huge fan of it.

Hm...

I always do my coding on a pc, so I have decent command line access, and so i can debug better

but, just try looking under the java folders until you come acrross a folder filled with .jar files, which im assuming is what you wantr to put in there. Cool Mac
