    Question Getting the downloaded pircbot.jar to properly be in the project

    Dear the Internet,

    I thank you in advance for taking a look at my problem, and I apologize if I am not posting this in the correct area. This is my first time on this site. I love day to day Java coding, and I'm really good at it. However, when it comes to downloading things from the Internet and/or getting the files configured properly, I normally crash and burn. I've finally admitted that I need help.

    I had a pircbot project that worked perfectly. However, as I attempted to reconfigure the files for another reason, Eclipse altogether stopped working and I had to redownload it from the Internet. From within the new Eclipse, I created a new project with a new Java class (this project only has one class) and copy and pasted all the text from the original class into it. Unfortunately, I do not remember how I got pircbot to work the first time as I had a mentor walk me through it at the time, and I no longer have a mentor. In my project folder, there is a "bin" folder, an "src" folder, and "pircbot.jar".

    I am using Eclipse 4.4.2 on Mac OS X 10.6.8. I apologize for how absolutely simple my problem is. I am probably going to post again after this problem is resolved so I can get databases up and running, as that is what broke my Eclipse the first time. If any more information is required from me to answer, just ask.

    Normally, jar files that are used as libraries are added to the lib-folder (makes sense huh). Open up your Eclipse project and find the settings. See where you can assign a lib folder and place the jar file there.

    I was able to resolve my issue by going into :
    Project -> properties -> Java build path -> libraries -> add external jars
    and selecting pircbot.jar
    Thank you to SurfMan for the help.
