How does one build a jar of a project created in Eclipse from the command line.

I tried the following from the command prompt:
Project folder>jar cf test.jar *.class

But the result was :
*.class : no such file or directory

I'm guessing that the class files aren't in the directory where you're issuing the jar command. You need to specify the path to where they live: Packaging Programs in JAR Files
