hello, i am trying to create a jar file using 'jar' command. my directory structure is- c: root test1 applet *.class if i create a jar for it and extract that jar. it is creating the same path(c:\root\test1\applet) again. but i just want the 'applet' folder to be jared and extract the same in some other directory. my working directory is 'root'. please tell me how do i do it. does it require to modify META-INF/MANIFEST.MF. If yes, how it is done?
try jar cvf myjar.jar applet/*.class from one folder up from applet, or jar cvf myjar.jar *.class from applet folder depending on your requirements. In questions like this, it is helpful to include the command that you used that was causing problem. cheers
