Eric, I suggest you to use jar unless you don't need to change the code. In most of the developing tools there is a way to bind the source code jar to the compiled jar in order to have all the debug features. In Eclipse, for instance, this can be achieved from the Project -> Properties -> Java Build Path dialog box: here you can add external (compiled) jar as desired. Once you have added a jar, click on the small triangle near the jar name, and you have new options: click on the source attachment option and insert the path of the source code jar. Done :-) G. -- Giuseppe Briotti g.brio...@gmail.com "Alme Sol, curru nitido diem qui promis et celas aliusque et idem nasceris, possis nihil urbe Roma visere maius." (Orazio)
