Hi all

i am exporting the jar from eclipse, which creates the MANIFEST.MF file but i need add some more information in that like
Date of creation,
User name
etc.,
But if i take the MANIFEST.MF file from the specifed file i have to edit every time.

So is their any script or plugin where it can take these information automatically

What do you mean by that ? You can make your own manifest file in your workspace and select it in the JAR export wizard.

Yes.. we have option to select the existing MANITEST.MF file..

But i have to edit that file every time before creating the jar. to make jar as i required.

i dont want to do that manually.

You can use Ant to generate your manifest file, using the "jar" task. It allows to set values in the manifest file dynamically.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
