Subject Re: Access jar files in a library directory in the jar file
Date Tue, 18 Jun 2013 16:54:25 GMT
It is fairly trivial to do. In your main jar target:

     1. create a temporary directory
     2. run the unjar task
     3. jar up your main jar, including the contents of the temporary 
     4. delete the temporary directory

See for docs on the unjar

jar file.  I looked in the ant user's guide, and I couldn't find such a task, but is there
a way to execute a short shell script from within the build.xml file?
