How can I maintain Jar file version?

I wonder whether the jar file verioning mechanism exist or not similar to cab files?
I want to maintain Jar file versioning so that only new components(ie jar files) are present always.
Is there any tool by which I can maintain it while jar creation?
Also how can I find out the existing version of a jar file?
Urgent help is appreciated!!!
Thanks in advance

JAR files do have some stuff that has to do with versioning. I don't know how CAB file versioning works so I can't tell you if you can do the same things with JAR files. See the
JAR File Specification
for more information.
