Strange Error in WSAD5.1.1...URGENT

I am getting the following error when i build my project in WSAD5.1.1

"IWAE0016E Line 2 in the MANIFEST.MF file in archive lib/LogForJava.jar exceeds the specification limit of 72 bytes."

LogForJava.jar is a third party jar.It seems that the WSAD validator dosent allow more than 72 bytes in the manifest file.
How can this error be rectified?

what exactly are you doing? If open your MANIFEST.MF file in the editor, you should see a list of .jar files available to the EAR application. These .jar files should be located in the EAR project in your workspace. You should have no problems with the size of these.

No more rhymes! I mean it!<br /> <br />Does anybody want a peanut?
