Eclipse Java; export jar, include referenced libraries, without fatjar

The next version of Eclipse (3.5, due next June) has an option to include all necessary jars. It was introduced in 3.5M5 (thanks, basszero).

Or you can try to build your project with Maven 2. Then, you can build a “fat” jar with mvn assembly:assembly.

Another option is to use ant. Unpack all JAR files into a temp directory and jar them up again.
