How to sign jar files

Ok this may be an easy question but I have some jar files that I need to sign before using them with WebStart.  Can anyone tell me an easy way to get them signed.  I also am using JBuilder if it can be done with in that.

Thanks

Do I need to install Ant in order to do this or can it be done just from a command line?

Yes, although 'install' is a bit of a heavy word. It's just another set of jars

If you meant do you need to install Ant to sign a jar, then the answer is no, but it will make it much easier and you'll be able to use it for many other things too
