How to generate executable jar file from JSystemTrader with Eclipse ?

Hi,

Eclipse 3.2
I try to generate executable jar file from this Java program under BSD licence :
http://www.myjavaserver.com/~nonlinear/JSystemTrader/JSystemTrader.html

I do :
Menu / file / Export...
Etc.

I have the following Error dialogue box :

JAR creation failed. See details for additional information.
Exported with compile warnings: /JSystemTrader/source/com/ib/client/EReader.java
Exported with compile warnings: /JSystemTrader/source/com/jsystemtrader/backdata/BackDataDialog.java
Exported with compile warnings:

Then warning about all class
Then  this error message :

Resource is out of sync with the file system: /JSystemTrader/log/EventLog.htm.

I think it is not the warning which stop generate Jar.
I think it is the last error message :
Resource is out of sync with the file system: /JSystemTrader/log/EventLog.htm.

I could add the JSystemTrader into eclipse and compile it. Try refreshing the workspace using F5

And a xml for ANT

build.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<project name="JST.makejar" default="makejar" basedir=".">
