Hi,

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

Priety.

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
