include file/folder to CLASSPATH

I have a folder with a set of configuration files.

the instruction to run a program says that i need to copy them to the CLASSPATH.

i am using the IntellJ IDE to compile and run the program.  Is there a way to point to(configure) the IDE to include the particular folder so that it automatically include all the files in the folder

Hi Dhananjeyan,

You can configure that directory as a module source root if it's a part of your project or as a module dependency.

it works however i need to clarify one more thing

the problem got sorted out when i did both the below said methods

a) Module -> dependencies - >Add -> pointed to the folder
b) libraries -> attach classes -> pointed to the folder

now what i need to know is the difference and which one is the correct way of solving it?

Both methods you mention deal with module dependencies. I.e. you just added external folder as a dependency for your module.
