Custom collections - adding custom jar files

Managed by | Updated .

Sometimes it's necessary to use some additional jar files when writing a custom gatherer. Before adding any custom jar files ensure they are not already present under $SEARCH_HOME/lib/java/all (and particularly not present as a different version) as this can cause class loading conflicts on startup.

These files must be unpacked into:


They should then be automatically detected within the class path.

To unpack the .jar file rename it and then unzip the file.
