this should work. make sure you have put the template into the JAR. the 
<jar> task may need to explicitly ask for it, or you should be using 
<copy> to copy the files from their source dir to build/classes or wherever.

I would have an "unjar" target that used <unjar> to unjar a jar just 
built, so you can see what is going on. Once you are 100% sure that the 
resource is going in, then you can worry about classloading.
