Export runnable Jar, blank launch configuration [message #535293] Fri, 21 May 2010 22:06 Go to next message

Hello,

I am new to eclipse. I have a project which I am successfully able to run.
I can not seem to export a runnable jar. The finish button is grayed out and I am pretty confident it is because I do not have a Launch configuration selected.

I have searched launch configurations and all I could really find is that you create them through the run button, which I have done as I can run my class.

Is there anything specific I need to enable in a launch configuration in order to have it enabled inside the runnable jar window?

Any help would be appreciated.
Lucas

Hi,

please see here: http://www.vogella.de/articles/Eclipse/article.html

To make it runable you also need to maintain the MANIFEST.MF:

Thank you. Yes I am aware of creating a manifest file.
Your writeup seems very helpful except it only discusses exporting a .jar

My understanding is by exporting a runnable jar the .manifest file is referenced and then the classpath information during "java ..." is not required.

My issue is that the export runnable jar window requests a launch configuration, which is blank despite the fact that I have the "Main" launch configuration created via right clicking on the class and saying "run as java applet"

I can not recall how I fixed this. I believe I was trying to export the wrong type. I was fundamentally doing something wrong. Sorry I can't help further.

To solve this what I did is I set the Main Class in the Run Configuration for the project:

File -> Run As -> Run Configuration.

Double Click "Java Application" and a new Configuration dialog appears.

in Main Class, Search for the class that you would like to set as Main Class. Click Apply then Close

Now, when you Export the project as Runnable Jar, you will the Launch Configuration is enabled and the Configuration setting that you made is available for selection.
