Hello there,
as I am totally new to Eclipse and unfortunately also to ant I have a question.
Basically I just want to create a .jar file and a .sh file with all settings for starting my client which is located in the .jar file.
What steps do I have to make in order to accomplish above goals ?
I guess I have to write an .xml file with the ant tasks. Can I use eclipse editor to do this ?
Many thanx for your answers,
Max

Hi, there are no ant tasks that create platform specific 'launchers' for your application, but there is a <jar> task that can be used to jar your application classes into a deployable jar unit.
For more information lookup: http://ant.apache.org/manual

You don't need ant for that, all you need to do is get your project building and running ok inside Eclipse first, then right click on the project, select Export > Jar file, and follow the instructions.
