I have the following package.
suncertify.client.FlightdataPresenter (where FlightdataPresenter has the main() method)
I want to create an executable jar file.
manifest file looks like

and dir structure is

manifest file is located in "classes" dir which is one level above suncertify.
I use the following command in classes dir to jar up the classes.

But when I run the jar file I get the following error.

It cannot find the class which has the main method.
But the file is present in jar file.
Thank you

I tried both "." and "/" The problem is that it cannot find the class which is in manifest file. Although I did this in the past but don't remember how I did it.

In manifest file the following line was missing.

Therefore it was not able to find the class with main() method.
Thank you
