Consider storing a library on your disk. This library is attached to your project, and the path to this library is included in the *.iml file of your project. However, this path should not be absolute, since the other teammates may store same library in the different locations.
That's why it makes sense to create a dedicated path variable PATH_TO_LIB:
- On the Settings dialog, click Path Variables.
- Click .
- In the Add Variable dialog box, type the variable name PATH_TO_LIB, and its value that points to the library location on your disk.
- Share the *.iml file on the version control.
- The other developers should update their projects, and change the value of PATH_TO_LIB variable to point to the locations of their libraries.
