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

Done :-)
