Adding User Libraries in Eclipse

There is a step-by-step walkthrough on how to add user libraries in Eclipse at:


It is important that you name your user libraries the same as the instructor. Otherwise, you may run into issues when importing Eclipse Java Projects from Github. Below are the names and links to the user libraries we will be using in this semester:

Library Eclipse Name Download Notes
Apache OpenNLP opennlp-tools Link You need to add the opennlp-tools-1.9.x.jar in Eclipse. You do not need the other JAR files.
Apache Log4j 2 log4j2 Link You need to add the log4j-api-2.x.x.jar and log4j-core-2.x.x.jar JAR files in Eclipse. You do not need the other JAR files, but you can use the appropriate *-javadoc.jar files to access the Log4j2 JavaDoc within Eclipse.
Apache Commons Lang3 commons-lang3 Link Download the latest commons-lang-3.x.jar file (listed under “Binaries”).
Apache Commons Text commons-text Link Download the latest commons-text-1.x.jar file (listed under “Binaries”). Requires commons-lang3 to work.
Eclipse Jetty jetty Link Look for the latest jetty-all-9.x.x-uber.jar JAR file. The directory is sorted lexicographically not numerically (e.g. by text not number), so version numbers like 9.4.22 will appear before version numbers like 4.4.3 even though it is a later version.
MariaDB JDBC Driver jdbc Link Download the latest mariadb-java-client-2.x.x.jar file.

Replace the x version numbers with the latest available versions.

This list will be updated over time.
