Hi,
I tried to add a Manifest.MF file to jar. Manifest.MF contains the following:
Manifest-Version: 1.0
Main-Class: com.gui.MyMainFile
I put Manifest.MF in C:/MyDir/(I put it and creating jar file, here)
/classes
/com
/gui/MyMainFile
to create jar file, I used:
jar -cfm MyJar.jar Manifest.MF -C classes .
what happen, MyJar.jar always uses its default Manifest.MF
Please, what's wrong here???
Regards

Hi Quasy,
have you checked whether your manifest file conforms to the specification? (Is there a line feed/carriage return in the last line?)
Hope this helps.
