[jdom-interest] Installing jdom

I copied jdom.jar to the lib/ext/ dir and this solved some of the problems.  Then I had to modify my CLASSPATH variable to point to the jdom classes - and finally its compiling.

The jdom.jar part makes sense to me - but not the CLASSPATH bit.  Why are the JDOM required files spread over different places - why not everything in the jar file?

I'm a bit new to java so I hope this is a sensible question.

  You should move the jdom.jar file to jre\lib\ext, under the jdk home.
  For example: c:\jdk\jre\lib\ext

  You also have to put there the xerces.jar file.

   - Noam.

    I've downloaded and built JDOM without any problems.  But when I try to compile my application source code (via javac) it complains that it cannot find the JDOM classes.

    What's the best way to deal with this?  Where should my JDOM libraries be stored?
