SWT: Stand alone jar [message #447269] Sat, 11 December 2004 22:22 Go to next message

I am having some problems creating a stand alone jar using the swt
librarys it seems that it cannot find the main class.

my process is
jar cvfm npreview.jar Manifest.tmp *.class

which creates the npreview.jar file which i can execute using a swing test
program that works.

But when i try to use my npreview.jar file that uses swt and jdbc to
access my access database it creates the jar but throws errors when i try
to execute it.

I want to thank anyone who replys to this in advance and say that i
appreciate all of you who take the time to look at this post.

My thought of what is wrong is that perhaps i dont have an environment
variable set correctly for the swt libraries or that i am not aware of an
include that i must have in my statement.

Manifest.tmp

Hi Kelly,

I have compiled and jared your classes (almost) without any problems (&
without any extra environment variables, I just inlcuded the path to
javac.exe (j2sdk\bin) ).
The npreview.jar I compiled finds the main class and runs without problems
(Of course, I get an SQL exception because I don't have the JDBC:ODBC data
source available...)

Provided that the file DOES have a new line at the end, your manifest seems
to be perfectly valid.

Double check this by unpacking your npreview.jar and looking at
/META-INF/MANIFEST.MF
If you can see your instructions in that manifest (Main-Class: JDBCApp),
java.exe should not have any problems. If you see an empty manifest (wich
only contains Created-By and/or Manifest-Version), my best bet is that there
IS NO return at the end!

Try adding several new lines at the end of the file just to make sure (they
will be trimmed away by jar.exe anyways) and making a new jar (or updating
your jar using: jar -uvfm npreview.jar Manifest.tmp)

You might also want to add
Class-Path: swt.jar
to your manifest, if this is stand alone application (be sure to put swt.jar
and the native library in the same directory as the jar file)

I have also allowed myself to attach the manifest file and the working
npreview.jar to this email for you....

regards,

Mani Ghamari
