jarlib-manifest

Description

Task to generate a manifest that declares all the dependencies in manifest. The dependencies are determined by looking in the specified path and searching for Extension / "Optional Package" specifications in the manifests of the jars.

Note that this task works with extensions as defined by the "Optional Package" specification. For more information about optional packages, see the document Optional Package Versioning in the documentation bundle for your Java2 Standard Edition package, in file guide/extensions/versioning.html or online at http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/guide/extensions/versioning.html.

See the Extension and ExtensionSet documentation for further details
