Package org.eclipse.jdt.ui.jarpackager

Provides classes and interfaces to generate a JAR file. This package provides the interfaces and classes for exporting a set of resources to a JAR file via runnable. It offers hooks to extend the JarPackageData to load and store the JarPackageData and to write the JAR itself.

Package Specification

The JarPackageData contains all necessary information to generate a JAR file. This class can be extended to provide additional data or to plug-in a custom JarWriter. The default runnable which creates the JAR can be replaced by implementing IJarExportRunnable. The same applies for the manifest provider (IManifestProvider) and the classes which save (IJarDescriptionWriter) and read (IJarDescriptionReader) the JarPackageData.
