This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I have created an app which is bundled in a JAR file. This app depends upon other jars, whose names I have provided in the Class-Path header in the MANIFEST file.
Currently, whenever I have to invoke this app, I have to make sure that the dependant jars are also in the same directory. This is quite irritating as there are lots of such dependant jars.
Is there some way I can mention in my MANIFEST the absolute path of dependant jars? Alternatively, if I can define a variable in MANIFEST which can be set when I invoke the jar (say by a command-line option), I can use it to set the jars location.
With this header, the classes in the files servlet.jar, infobus.jar, and acme/beans.jar will serve as extensions for purposes of the applet or application. The URLs in the Class-Path header are given relative to the URL of the JAR file of the applet or application.
