Building projects with Eclipse
This section explains how to build projects using psychWithJava
and Eclipse. Applies to all OSs. Note: the screen shots below

In the text field next to Directory

Give a name to the project (top text field) and click Next.
In "Java Settings" click on the "Libraries" tab. Then click on
Highlight "psychWithJava" in the "New Variable Classpath Entry"
