manifest attribute of ejbjar and war task wraps text





------- Additional Comments From conor@cortexebusiness.com.au  2004-09-15 08:39 -------
The ejbjar and war tasks use different approaches to managing the manifest. This
is for historical reasons - the war/jar task, being part of the Ant core needed
to work with JDK 1.1, whereas ejbjar, being optional, could use the Manifest
handling classes from JDK 1.2+

In any case, the 512 byte limit is not part of the Jar spec - it's just the
arbitrary implementation limit of the JDK's Manifest class. The Ant Manifest
class has no such limitation and will correctly handle input lines of any length
and format them into 72 byte lines.
