Looks like you're on the right path now. So -Djava.library.path is what
allows the Java program to find the binary linked library for jzmq. For
reference, -D is a flag that allows you to pass runtime environment
parameters which are available via e.g.
So for Eclipse, you need two things.
1. Set up your program to run with that property (java.library.path)
set, which can be done per program (main) or globally.
2. Set up your classpath.
I'm using STS, but should be the same.
To set your library path for a program, go to Run -> Run Configurations ->
Java Application -> [your program] -> Arguments tab. If you don't have any
programs yet, just right-click your program with a main() and run it. It
gets created automatically even if it has errors. In the Arguments tab,
under VM arguments, add -Djava.library.path=/usr/local/lib.
To set your classpath, I usually use Maven or Gradle, but if you're rolling
your own custom project with no dependency management, you right click your
project -> Properties -> Java Build Path -> Libraries tab, then add your
Hope that helps.
Also, if you want to set up a Maven or Gradle based sample ZeroMQ Java
project, let me know, and I can help with that. It would be a nice repo to
have on GitHub for people like yourself to fork and start coding.
