Subject zipfile with manifest
Date Sun, 14 Aug 2005 20:28:19 GMT
<http://ant.apache.org/manual/CoreTasks/manifest.html> seems to be
saying that ant creates the manifest in the standard place, the META-INF
directory, specified by
<http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/guide/jar/jar.html>, which is
putting the manifest in the META-INF directory.  Is that a correct
reading of the manual?

I'm writing a plugin for JamochaMUD <http://www.jamochamud.org/>.
JamochaMUD requires that the plug-in be in a zip file, but that the
extension is .jpa <http://www.jamochamud.org/PlugInDocs.html>.  Also,
the manifest must be moved from The META-INF directory to the top
directory.

I think what that means is that JamochaMUD is looking for a jar file,
but with a .jpa extension and the manifest moved to the top level.

Without commenting on the wisdom of those requirements, how do I meet
them?

I'm looking at <http://ant.apache.org/manual/CoreTasks/zip.html> and
this seems to be the ticket.

How do I get the manifest into the zip file from ant?



Thanks,

Thufir
