Subject Jar task
Date Fri, 20 Jul 2001 13:08:56 GMT
Does anyone have any experience with performing a jar update using ANT?

I have a JAR file, and all I want to do is replace the manifest with one
provided by me.  
I can achieve this using the jar command by calling:

jar -uvfM code.jar META-INF/

Looking at the ANT task, it seems that I can create a Jar, but not update
it.  Is there anyway I can update the jar?

I was thinking about calling Unjar, followed by the Jar command again but
this time using the new manifest.  Its a workaround, but I'd like to not
have to Unjar the jar file.
