Subject Re: Using Main-Class and Class-Path in a manifest file
Date Wed, 13 Mar 2002 00:07:58 GMT
It's not an absolute necessity for us to include everything in a single 
jar file, but it is a convenience.  In the jar spec it seems to hint at 
the fact that you can do this, though I'm inferring that.  It doesn't 
seem to be very explicit about it.

Anyway, if we're trying to make the java runtime do something that it 
wasn't necessarily designed to do then you're probably right--we may 
just be better off deploying the dependency jars separately and simply 
referring to them still in the classpath in the manifest file.
