Subject Re: ejbjar, jar, and manifests with JBoss
Date Wed, 13 Jul 2005 15:04:48 GMT

Thanks very much for your prompt reply.  I figured it out - it was just 
a silly mistake on my part.  I didn't end my manifest file with a blank 
line, so it didn't recognize the final attribute, which in my case was 
the Class-Path.  I added a newline after that, and it worked without issue.

Thanks again for your help!
