Subject Specifying the version in the <manifest> task
Date Wed, 26 Jun 2002 13:15:13 GMT
If I try to add a Manifest-Version attribute to a MANIFEST.MF file that 
I'm creating from scratch, I basically wind up with two entries--one at 
the top that says

        Manifest-Version: 1.0

and then later on mine shows up.  This results in an invalid MANIFEST 
format, since you're only supposed to specify this tag once!!

Is there any way to change the manifest version via the manifest task or 
will it always provide this value for me??  It even looks like the 
ordering of attributes, even though implied from the build script may be 
(slightly) non-deterministic in the actual produced MANIFEST.MF file???

Here's the build snippet and the resulting manifest:

        <manifest file="${runtime.dir}/META-INF/MANIFEST.MF">
            <!-- version gets added automatically?? -->
            <attribute name="Manifest-Version" value="1.1"/>
            <attribute name="Created-By" value="${WIN.USERNAME}"/>
            <attribute name="Class-Path" 

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Created-By: MSTOPPER
Manifest-Version: 1.1
Class-Path: core.jar ngpd.jar util.jar core-validation.jar core-momapi
 -client.jar core-momapi-j2ee-server.jar core-momapi-proxy.jar core-mo
 mapi-server.jar core-securitymaint2-ejb.jar commons-httpclient.jar co
 mmons-validator.jar fop.jar httpunit.jar jakarta-regexp-1.jar xerces.
 jar xml4j.jar concurrent.jar

Any help would be appreciated.
