I don't know why, but I can't get my version of the manifest file into the jar file I create. I know I'm putting in the right command, but when I check the manifest file in the JAR archive, it's just the default one supplied by sun.
Is there a way to extract that one and insert my one manifest file?

Rob to give you an idea, here is my server jar command that adds my manifest file to it.

as you can see I have my manifest file located in the c:\devexam\manifest\server directory. The "-cvfm" shows that the 'm' means that you are going to tell where the manifest file is.

Rob,
I had the same problem simply because I did not include a new line after the last entry in the manifest file.
e.g. content in the manifest.mf file
Manifest-Version: 1.0
Main-Class: package.classname
<-- make sure you have a new line here...
... otherwise the Main-Class will not be included in the created manifest file in the jar file.
