Niagara Dev: Add 3rd Party Jar to Eclipse


Posted on

Chances are you might need to use an external jar api within your niagara ax development project heres how to reference it:

Before you begin

Assuming you're on a Windows platform and the Niagara plugin is installed. If the plug in is not installed you can download it here. Open up Eclipse. I am using Eclipse Indigo.

1. In Eclipse, with package explorer open, create a folder at the project root level named ‘ext’

2. Copy the .jar file to the ext folder

3. Reference the jar as an external jar in the build path

4. Do a build full from the Niagara AX plugin menu

5. You can now use the api within your project
