  Or in a generic way a task like apply but not with an external
  command but with a ant task.
   Thank you in advance.

+ As for a generic way, this would make this report a duplicate of bug#1700.
+ 
+ In the case of unzip/jar there is an undocumented feature (don't tell 
+ anybody 8-), that is likely to disappear in Ant 1.5, but exists since 
+ Ant 1.1 - and even before that.
+ 
+ If you hand the task a directory instead of an archive as a source parameter, it
+ will assume that all files in that directory are archives and try to extract them.
+ 
+ Obviously, this is no real alternative to a fileset based solution, but can be 
+ used as a workaround.
