Like the title,I have a project with serveral java file, then I want to make up them to one *.jar file with programing.
I have put the serveral java files into one File(AlimonyGather), and use commands "jar cvf A.jar AlimonyGather "
But the A.jar warning that "Failed to load Main-Class".

If you are using Java 6, you can use the entrypoint flag (e) to specify the main class. Otherwise you will have to create a manifest file in your jar file. Here's a tutorial http://download.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/deployment/jar/appman.html that describes both.

First of all, your class path is at the top level. Therefore, you should add your top level package folder to your Jar.
AlimonyGather doesn't look like a package name.

Let's say your main class is com.example.alimony.Main.

Then try this:

jar -cfe A.jar com.example.alimony.Main com/example/alimony


The mind is a strange and wonderful thing. I'm not sure that it will ever be able to figure itself out, everything else, maybe. From the atom to the universe, everything, except itself.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
