It seems like all of the examples and tutorials on this are extremely vague, so I thought that someone might give me specific instructions.
How do I make an executable .jar file out of my project? I have a simple program called calculator.java, located in C:\Java\calc\calculator.java. I gather that I need to make a manifest file manifest.mf, but what exactly do I need to put in it, and then what do I do? I think that I'm supposed to go to the command prompt and write somthing like:
jar cfm calc.jar , with stuff after this also
So what exactly do I do? I'm very confused that this is not easier to do in Java, it seems like there should be a simpler way of making an executable java program, like .exe's in C++, etc.
Thanks in advance for any help!
