IzPack java installer

i am trying IzPack

to create a installer for my java application.

The problem is in creating a shortcut.
I have mentioned classpath in commandLine attribute in the shortcut attribute in shortcutSpec.xml file.
But my classpath has become very huge
Something like
commandLine='-classpath ..\log4j-1.2.7.jar;.;..\mysql-connector-java-3.0.6-stable-bin.jar;..\conf.jar;..\datasocket.jar;..\photos.jar;..\help\jsearch.jar;..\help\jhall.jar;..\help\jhbasic.jar;..\help\jh.jar;..\thirdparty\xercesImpl.jar;..\thirdparty\xmlParserAPIs.jar; com.pack1.pack2.pack3.App'

The target element in the shortcut truncates is. May be there is some limit to the number of characters in the shortcut target.
How can I solve this?
