[protege-discussion] OWLAPI

I'm new to Eclipse and the Protege-OWL API, so I'm trying to work 
through the API Programmer's Guide, but I'm having some problems. The 
Hello World example is working fine, but I'm getting the following 

>WARNING: [Local Folder Repository] The specified file must be a directory. (C:\Program Files\Protege_3.3.1\MyProtegePrograms\plugins\edu.stanford.smi.protegex.owl) -- LocalFolderRepository.update() 

When I try the third example (load an existing ontology), I have 
problems with the following function: 


When I run the application I get the following error: 

>Exception in thread "main" java.lang.Error: Unresolved compilation problem: 
        Unhandled exception type Exception 

It seems like these problems are due to how I've set up my classpath, 
but I've tried starting a new project and setting it up differently 
several times, I've even created a separate folder and copied all the 
.jar files into it in case I'd missed some, but I keep getting the 
same problems. 

As I'm a newbie to this environment, I'm sure it's a very stupid 
mistake I've made in setting up the project. The following 
instructions from the Programmer's Guide aren't exactly foolproof! :) 

"If you are using a Java IDE such as Eclipse or IntelliJ, select the 
Protégé installation folder as your project home. Next, add all the 
JAR files from the installation to your project classpath." 

I apologise for asking such a basic question, but the results I got 
from searching the archive haven't resolved the problem. 
Thank you in advance for your help,
