Subject Use of zipfileset
Date Thu, 19 May 2005 12:45:59 GMT

I have to create a jar that includes other external jars. I want those
external jars to be present in the classpath.
For this I am using the <zipfileset> task. But the problem with the
'src' attribute of <zipfileset> is that I can mention just one jar in
the src attribute. But I have to include jars from a "lib" directory,
and src attribute does not take **/*.jar.

The script I have written is

<project name="myProject" default="main" basedir=".">
    <target name="main">
        <jar destfile="myProject.jar">
		<!--PROBLEM HERE :: In the src attribute I want to
include multiple jars-->
            <zipfileset src="myOwnJar.jar"/>
                <attribute name="Built-By" value="${}"/>
                <attribute name="Main-Class"

The lib folder has all the jars and I want to include those jars. Is
there any other way of doing this.
I tried with the <zipfileset> dir attribute but that includes the jar
and the jar is not present in the classpath.
