i am making a jar file and want to add my manifest file to it. The manifest file name is and java class I want to add is zzz.class. The manifest file code is
Main-Class: zzz.class
When I am giving the command to create the jar file it is giving the following error.
invalid header field
The syntax is:
jar cfm abc.jar zzz.class

Try this:
Manifest-Version: 1.0
Main-Class: zzz.class
Space in Manifest-Version:1.0 was missing.
