Subject Re: How do you version jar files?
Date Thu, 15 Nov 2001 20:03:44 GMT
Add a key/value to the manifest file
Then the manifest file needs to be run, as opposed to a new class for
spitting out the version number.

You could use the find and replace ant task to modify the manifest file
locally for the current build version.
