Missing Jsoup jar

Hi I have another question for Sean.

I am writing an extension that uses JSON and JSOUP. Both jars are in the jars directory for MD Windows but the jsoup-1.11.1.jar file is missing from my Mac implementation. I get a class not found on the Mac.

If I copy the jsoup jar from windows to OSx the extension works in the same way as Windows.

Is this by design or a mistake?

Both of my installations are 2017.7.1 (1671). My Windows machine is 8.1 and my Mac machine is Yosemite.

    Hi Mike!
    Moneydance doesn't use the JSOUP library, so you'll need to bundle the classes within it into the .mxt file for your extension.

    If you're using ant, you can easily merge a .jar file into the mxt using something like the following:

        <jar destfile="${dist}/myextension.mxt" compress="false" >
          <fileset dir="${build}" includes="**" />
          <zipfileset src="${lib}/library1.jar" />
          <zipfileset src="${lib}/library2.jar" />

    Thanks Sean

    I must have copied the jar to the MD directory by mistake. I have done
    what you suggested and it works fine on both machines.
