Plugin development using external libraries


I am trying to develop a plugin for openfire that will display posts from a users’ Twitter feed as notifications in the client. To do this I need to know how to use an external library in plugin development for openfire. I have so far developed a plugin to post status messages from a client to Twitter ( I referred the Plugin Development guide for this) but I need to use an external library to display the Twitter feed messages.

Can someone please tell me how to use external libraries in plugin development? I have tried this with no success.

Greatly appreciate a quick response!

Thank You!

Simply put the library in a /lib directory in your plugin. It is automatically appended to the classpath for your plugin at runtime.

Thank you! I am new to openfire and java development so really appreciate your quick reply:)
