Hi I have a jar file which contains relavent libraries inside its lib folder.

for one jar file I have set the manifest file like this
Class-Path: log4j-1.2.13.jar
to keep multiple jar file in classpath what should i do
or any other idea like jar dependency while creating jar.
(dont know how to create this jar dependcy)

I don't think you can nest the jars. You can put them next to each other and let an executable jar point to the neighbouring jars using the classpath manifest entry.

So you "MUST" have an executable jar for this, otherwise it won't work.
Example manifest:

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Main-Class: com.test.Start
Class-Path: jar1.jar jar2.jar jar3.jar

So put all the jars in one directory and then execute the executable jar (containing the manifest).

PS. I use Ant to create my jars (integrated in eclipse).

I tried to do this from Eclipse. But it didn't work. I make a jar of all the lib files and "Added External Jars" to the project. But, when I removed the lib files, Eclipse couldn't find the relevant lib files.

Do I need to add a classpath variable that points to the .jar file specifically or make it executable like you mentioned above?

Thanks in advance.

Mike
