Hi ,

I have a Java project in eclipse with src files and lib jar files.I want to convert this entire package to jar file which is to be run on a remote server.

The eclipse project is an application with main() method

I want to create the jar file in such a way that when this jar is called via cmd prompt,the main method class is called which invokes the rest of the applications.

Can someone please help me with this as I have no previous experience of creating jar files.

Thanks

Moieen

The jar file needs to have a manifest with a Main-Class entry: http://faq.javaranch.com/java/JarFiles
