Hi Francis,

first of all I am astonished that you always reply within minutes. 
I hope that sitting in front of your computer answering my (stupid) questions is not your
only activity in life.
If so, let me tell you that there is more to life than computers and that you should sometimes
really go out and have a beer or two :-)

1. The MANIFEST.MF does not seem to get recreated, so forget about it for now.
2. IMO the config.xml should always be in the file system. It makes no sense to hide it inside
a jar. I think even logically it belongs exactly where the readme.txt and the tutorial.pdf
belong. And there is no doubt that we must be able to debug the app without fiddling around
with program arguments. And besides that I always plead for "comfort over convention".

One more question for you though.
I want to debug the HSQLDB JDBC driver code.

How can I obtain the sources for HSQLDB-
