I have a requirement, where by I need to create a executable jar file. The application uses third party jar files like log4j.jar etc. One way, I was able to do is extract the class files from third party files and include those classes under the execuatable jar. But that means I need to extract lot of 3rd party jar files. Is there any way, I accomplish creating an executable jar file by including the 3rd party jar files in manifest file.

You can do it by the Class-Path attribute in the manifest file.
Typically the entry will look like
Class-Path : a.jar lib/b.jar c.jar
The values are relative urls to your jar and must be separated by white space.
