I'am new on this list and have first one

Is there a posibillity to use the ant builtin
"jar" command to say the jar there ist one Main-class

Normal the way is to step following commands in the shell:
 1. create a txt file <maintxt> and put following code inside:
Main-Class: myMainClass
 2. run the jar command like follow: > jar -cmf maintxt app.jar

Now you have an jar that you can use with > java -jar app.jar
and the java runs the application with the main class myMainClass

I don't found a way to say this in build.xml and i will NOT
use the exec command.

Any Ideas?

Thanks and greating
