hello,
i am trying to create a jar file using 'jar' command. my directory structure is-
c:
root
test1
applet
*.class
if i create a jar for it and extract that jar. it is creating the same path(c:\root\test1\applet) again. but i just want the 'applet' folder to be jared and extract the same in some other directory.
my working directory is 'root'.
please tell me how do i do it. does it require to modify META-INF/MANIFEST.MF. If yes, how it is done?

try
jar cvf myjar.jar applet/*.class from one folder up from applet, or
jar cvf myjar.jar *.class from applet folder depending on your requirements.
In questions like this, it is helpful to include the command that you used that was causing problem.
cheers
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
