Recommended way to depend on eclipse jars without RCP?

Hi folks

I'm working on a personal project that requires the use of the eclipse java parser in order to create an abstract syntax tree (AST).

However, the project is intended as a library not a client application and I don't want to use the eclipse RCP as it's much more than I need (I don't want a SWT UI or to use OSGi). 

Currently, I've simply pulled some jars out of my copy of eclipse. However, I'd like to know if there's a recommended way to include eclipse jars in other projects other than simply depending on the whole RCP.

Any thoughts? Comments?


PS FWIW Here's the jars I'm using at the moment:
