Thanks, Bob!  I knew that I had to add them in, just wasn't sure the 
best way to do so.  In Netbeans, you could point/mount other 
directories, and I recall unzipping all the src files, compiling 
everything, and just mounting the source tree there.  I realize now that 
this was overkill.

Now, the next step (after checking that everything works as planned) is 
figuring out which .jars I -need- and which I can safely not load for 
now.  I am presuming that I will use the above import statements, track 
down the .jar that contains those objects, and remove the rest.

Thanks for the help.  Off and running.
