I always find that the easiest way of building a project (creating your jar) is to use ant. IntelliJ has ant support so it should be straight forward. Just create a new jar ant task and give it the files you want included and then execute the ant script.

The ant task looks something like this:

<jar basedir="${build-location}" destfile="${deploy-location}\jarname.jar"/>


Very simple.

But how can i create a new jar ant task?
I have seen "Create ant file" or something like that in the build menu but it does nothing with outputting ".jar" files.

It does actually. If you create a new ant file (usually called build file) and then add a task to the ant file as above. When you execute the ant file, it will do the task and build your jar.
