A Jar File is really just a zipped file containing all your classes in their subdirectories and associated files.
The Manifest is the file that you create to go along with your jar to give the jvm a clue as to which of these zillion class files is the one that has the main method in it. Of course it does other stuff also.

In your command line, do
jar -help
and you'll see the options available.
e.g. To create a jar with all the classes within a directory:
jar cvf mfJar.jar c:/myDir/*.class
