Subject RE: Unrolling included jars in a new jar file?
Date Thu, 27 Mar 2003 17:09:35 GMT
Yes, you need the <unjar> and <jar> tasks.
Also look at the <genjar> optional task.

But, one of the great things about Ant (IMHO) is that it doesn't duplicate the behaviour of
the jar builder in JBuilder! Our experience is that JBuilder builds bloatware jars, it's much
better to describe the dependencies properly in the build file.

Subject: Unrolling included jars in a new jar file?


I'm trying to duplicate the behavior of the jar builder in Jbuilder. For
included jars, it un-jars the contents of included jars and zips, and puts
the contents in the target jar, along with your own classes. Is there a way
to do this with Ant?
