My component is using phpExcel library; I put it into
/libraries/phpexcel/Classes. This is an independent (and quite big) library, so I thought, that it would be wise to tell the admin where to put it before component installation. And in the install script of the component check the existence of the lib.
I import the library using this code:
jimport('libraries.phpexcel'); //Include PHPExcel classes JLoader::import('phpexcel.Classes.PHPExcel'); JLoader::import('phpexcel.Classes.PHPExcel.IOFactory');
Is it the correct way to use an external library?
