  +<h3>JAR file execution</h3>
  +
  +The parameter of the <tt>jar</tt> attribute is of type <tt>File</tt>;
  +that is, the parameter is resolved to an absolute file relative to the
  +base directory of the project, <i>not</i> the directory in which the Java
  +task is run. If you need to locate a JAR file relative to the directory
  +the task will be run in, you need to explicitly create the full path
  +to the JAR file.
