In MyApp's Jar's manifest specify the class-path for the other Jar files.

I tried that, but it didn't seem to work.
I actually need to clarify the issue - the real problem seems to be
that I have resources (icons in this case) that I'm trying to access
in OtherDevExternalLibrary, but I'm running MyApp. So, when I go to
look for the icons, they aren't there (even though they are).
Something like this...
 - resources
  - icons (contains specific icons to MyApp)
 - OtherDevExternalLibrary
  - resources
   - icons (contains icons for the external library)*
* I can't seem to see the icons located in this directory.
Do you have any suggestion for this problem?

You do have OtherDevExternalLibrary.jar as an external file
outside MyApp.jar ??

Here's what I've figured out since yesterday.

1. OtherDevExternalLibrary.jar should be packaged in MyApp.jar.
2. I have the MANIFEST file in MyApp referring to

The only problem is, the MANIFEST file refers to
OtherDevExternalLibrary.jar as...



The manifest should refer to OtherDevExternalLibrary.jar, but
OtherDevExternalLibrary.jar should be a separate file in same
dir as MyApp.jar !
