Description Jesse Glick 2004-04-24 01:24:11 UTC
If you create a J2SE project with the wizard and
say that it is an application (rather than a
library), the project generator should

1. Create a file. Can be initially
empty; I am editing build-impl.xsl a bit to make
sure that the Main-Class attr is added if it was
not in the source manifest.

2. Set manifest.file=manifest.txt (or whatever it
is called) in

3. Add the <use-manifest/> marker to project.xml.

Is this all what has to be done? I thought that it is more difficult
task! :-)
