Hi guys : Is there a full proof, easy way to turn an eclipse project into an java executable jar file ? Ive tried using fat jar, but it doesnt work (my project consists of 4 eclipse projects, using jar files which are embedded in those sub projects), the application depends on all 4 projects.
Im assuming that eclipse would come bundled with a jar generator, and since it clearly can internally handle such dependencies at compile and run time, it should be able to package up a jar automagically, but no luck so far.
Originally posted by Jeanne Boyarsky: Jay, Eclipse comes with the ability to create a regular jar. For an executable jar, you do need a plugin or external program.
In fact, the "JAR Manifest Specification" page of the export wizard for jar files at the bottom has a "Select the class of the application entry point" field, which works well, in my experience.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
