Hi Folks,

Is it alright to have META-INF/MANIFEST.MF in the final submission.jar because in the instructions.html it only expects the following structure

code/
docs/
version.txt
db-file.db
runme.jar

Regards,
Shrenik Sakriya

Well, maybe you could fail automatically if had it in the final file (which can be either a .jar or a .zip file). I'm not sure... but the runme.jar file does have to have one!

Hi Roberto,

Thanks for your quick reply. I'm using the ant script posted on this forum which creates this folder in the main final submission jar file so, i was assuming it was alright to have it but if none of you folks have submitted it with this then i would not take risk of including this folder.

Hi Shrenik,

Don't know which script you used, but if it was mine you don't need to worry. I used the exact same script and my submission.jar also had a META-INF/MANIFEST.MF, so that's not a problem.

Kind regards,
Roel

The META-INF folder is usually auto created when the jar is created, unless you specify not to.

Hi Roel,

Yup it was yours that i used to create the final submission.jar file with. So, if yours had the META-INF/MANIFEST.MF then i suppose it is alright to submit it as is. Thanks for confirming it.
