My application needs me to add some atributes to manifest.mf of different jars without changing the previous version of manifest.mf. In short i want to append some attributes to manifest.mf of JAR. I am using ANT to build my application. In JAVA i can do this while creating the jar with command
jar cfm jar-file manifest-addition input-file(s)given here But i want to do this with an ANT Task. Is there any ANT task i can use for this? if not then the only solution left with me is
- Unzip the jar
- Update the MANIFEST.MF
- JAR up the content again
This seems to be a lengthy process.
