Java Question

Eclipse does not recognize org.jdesktop.*

I use

JRE system Library [jre7]
and when I
import org.jdesktop.application.Action
I get

The import org.jdesktop cannot be resolved


I removed the build path by
Build Path > remove from build path
and then I did

project > properties > java build path > add Library > JRE system Library
and still same error .

Answer

The org.jdesktop code is not part of Java SE, so the classes won't be in the JRE. You need to locate and download a JAR file containing the classes, and then add it to your Eclipse buildpath.

(One place to download the JAR is here ... but it is easy to do your own searching if this link breaks. Go to Maven Central or findjar.)
