    Default Configuring Java Build Path in Eclipse

    I have a question about setting up one project to be able to use the methods in another project. I tried configuring the build path of the first project but that didn’t work. So I installed the package in the second project on the local machine and that worked. Details are below.

    My questions are:
    1. How to set up one project to use the methods of another project? I really with the "configure the build path" procedure had worked.

    2. What really happened when I did the second procedure to install the package on the local machine? Is that a bad practice? Can I undo it?

    Thank you! Details follow:

    I have two java projects: ardublock and openblocks.
    See step 2 in this page to see what it looks like:
    Setup ArduBlock Development in Eclipse | Ardublock

    The methods of ardublock use the methods inside openblocks. So I followed step number 3 on to :
    “Configure “Java Build Path” of ardublock to include openblocks”

    But that didn’t work. ardublock still could not see the methods of openblocks.

    Instead I followed this procedure on
    Import ardublock to Eclipse | Ardublock

    -- -- --quote
    1. install the openblocks package locally.
    go to openblocks folder and run
    $ mvn clean
    $ mvn install
    After these command, maven will compile and install openblocks package in your local machine.
    -- -- -- end quote

    And that worked. Now ardublock sees the methods in openblocks and compiles and runs. But I really wish I could get procedure 1 (configure the java build path) to work. I am afraid that what I did in procedure 2 (install package on local machine) might not be a good practice and maybe can’t be undone?

    Default Re: Configuring Java Build Path in Eclipse

    To use other projects in Eclipse, go to the configure build path window (wizard). There should be a projects tab.
    You should be able to add required projects there.

    Someone else will need to address your other questions (I don't speak Maven).

    Poor planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part
