I've converted an application project over from NetBeans 6 to IDEA 8, and I've created all the global libraries and linked them to the module etc. However, I can't find a way to include these in the distribution build. What NetBeans did was create a "lib" directory and include all the jars from the
libraries for that module, and also add them to the class-path entry in the manifest file.
I've tried including the libraries in the application jar itself, and then adding that jar to the classpath when I try to run the application but it can't find the classes from the libraries.
How do you package and distribute an application and all its libraries with IDEA 8?
