MyEclipse Libraries

The Eclipse JDT model includes the classpath container concept. A classpath container is a logicalcollection of Java libraries, i.e., JAR and ZIP files, that canappear on a project’s classpath. MyEclipse provides you with many user-configurable classpath containers, including Generic JavaEE Libraries and many framework libraries, like JSF, JPA, Spring,Struts, etc.

Note: Runtime libraries are not deployed with your project.
