Hi Patrick,

I have the same problem, my current workaround is to unjar the static jar, copy the new files to the unjarred location and then jar it up as a new jar. I'd like to see jar updating support though ;)

Subject: how do you update a jar

i have tonnes of stuff to jar up - thankfully most of it is
static, so...

i've created a static custom jar file which i'd like to
update with the build files.

normally it's something like: jar -uf static.jar .

ant ignores my jar task when i specify an already existing
jar to add files too.
