Hey i am trying to make my program into a jar file in Netbeans. But i am having problems and i  am not sure where.
I think i want it to be a stand alone jar file, though im not 100% on what that means.
But not be stuck on a windows machine, i need it to work for Mac also.


my Manifest is:


Manifest-Version: 1.0
Main-Class: SP1
Created-By: NetBeans IDE
Specified-By: Kenjar.jarContent

if that is the case, it will not work.. you can not have a jar inside another jar. you have to use the classpath attribute in the manifest to point to where the 3rd party jar is. here are a few links:

The last post in both threads will be the important part. your best option is to do Jimmack's suggestion, where he deploys in a zip file, so then he knows the external jar file is in the correct location every time

The problem is

In your Jar, the PlaybackListener is having an extra folder classes/javazoom/jl/player/advanced/PlaybackListener

It should be

javazoom/jl/player/advanced/PlaybackListener

Then your program will work.

Jar your files from javazoom package.  Or move the javazoom package to the root.  It shouldnt be with in classes folder in the jar file.

Hope this helps.

Muruga
