Subject [SUBMIT] New jar task
Date Mon, 02 Apr 2001 18:30:09 GMT
I'm donating the <genjar> task to the project. 
Yes, it's another jar task that:

o given a set of 'root' classes will determine all dependant
  classes and include them in the jar (subject to filtration rules)

o include 'resource' files (non-class files) into the jar and allows
  'repackaging', i.e. forcing the file's path to whatever you like

o optionally generates manifest entries for every file included 
  in the jar

o allows setting manifest attributes (both main and per-entry) 
  from the project file.

The source is attached as well as the doc page:
-  unjar to its own directory
-  build with ant
    'ant usage' displays all relevant targets
-  documentation is in ./docs
-  examples are in dist-build.xml and test/build.xml
-  check dist-build.xml for example usage of an 
   optional task

Caveat: Java2 is required and only 1.3 is tested

Send bug reports or enhancement requests directly 
to me.  Contact info is in the docs.

What if the Hokey Pokey is really what it's all about?
