As JGoodies provides both the Bindings and Forms libraries we can download these both from the same site.
- Open a browser and go to ‘
- Select ‘Download and choose ‘
- From the list of java libraries select and download ‘
JGoodies Forms’ and ‘
JGoodies Bindings’. For this program I will be using Forms 1.7.1 and bindings 2.9.1.
- Open each package in turn, locate the Java ARchive (JAR) file (‘
jgoodies-binding-2.9.1.jar’ and ‘
jgoodies-forms-1.7.1.jar’) and copy these files.
We are going to place a copy of the JAR files into the ‘
plugins’ directory of the Eclipse installation. Locate where you installed Eclipse and find the subdirectory ‘
plugins’. Copy the JAR files into this directory. This will make it easier when we come to add these into our program.
