make .jar runnable
I can make a .jar from my program and move it to a folder in my progject but I would like to make
it runnable. So I have shown the Command to make the -cmf (non runnable) .jar that
works fine.
I will show the myManifest for the -cvmf (runnable) command but it will not load
the attribute from schoolofdb.jar.

I thought the attribute would be found in the shown below.
the schoolofdb.jar is created as before but not runnabale. please find the error
stated below.

working -cmf command works fine

-cmvf command will not load

above 3 params

b] this is the only thing in the myManifest[/b]

b]error when trying to click the schoolofdb.jar created using -cvmf [/b]
