Developing Java Agents for Lotus Notes under Eclipse

I started developing some java agent for Lotus Notes 8.5 .

The native Lotus Notes eclipse environment does not really meet my needs.

I usually use a regular eclipse environment to develop my java applications with all its nice help features.

I wanted to develop these Lotus Notes java agents under the same environment, but when calling Lotus specific java classes, I got some errors because eclipse could not reference the right jar.

I fixed the problem by just adding Notes.jar (that I found in LotusNotes program directory) as an external jar in the build path of my eclipse project.
