ECLIPSE NEWBIE: Is there an "auto-jar" option?

Dear Eclipse Experts,

In JBuilder there was an option, when building, to always automatically also create a jar file.  Does Eclipse have that option?  I'm currently manually Exporting after building...

    In Package Explorer, select something, File->Export->Jar file   etc.

    There is an entry explaining this in the HELP: just search for:   "create jar".

    Not sure if it is possible to do so automatically. Netbeans has it, though.

    Indeed, in ECLIPSE it is not fully automatic.
