Hello all,

I have completed a project in java and now i want to make it an executable jar file.
i have followed some steps to make a jar file for a single java class and now i want to know how to add all java classes from different packages and also how to add all my library files into a single executable jar file??
i have added main class and classpath in manifest file, but still i am not getting the jar file

can anyone help me to solve this problem

Thank you

Start Command Prompt.
Navigate to the folder that holds your class files:
--C:\>cd \mywork
Set path to include JDK’s bin. For example:
--C:\mywork> path c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_09\bin;%path%
Compile your class(es):
---C:\mywork> javac *.java
Create a manifest file:
---C:\mywork> echo Main-Class: DanceStudio >manifest.txt
Create a jar file:
---C:\mywork> jar cvfm DanceStudio.jar manifest.txt *.class
Test your jar:
---C:\mywork> DanceStudio.jar

Jar Link

Probably you need to play around with JAR's manifest file. Google for "Java jar manifest".
