Hi all,
I am in the process of creating my runme.jar. Am I allowed to use ant? As the manifest will have "Created-By: Apache Ant".
Thanks
Chris.

If your assignment spec doesn't say you can't use Ant, then you should be okay! (Of course yours doesn't!) I used Ant to build my jar and everything went just fine. It didn't even occur to me that it would put that in the manifest.
Figuring that you will package that baby up who knows how many times, I'm sure they expect you to use something like Ant to build it all for you. It'd be ridiculous to do it by hand each time. (Or a batch file ???)

Thanks. Just wanted to make sure. The last think I wanted was to fail just beacuse of the way I built my jar.
Chris.
