I have a manifest file and using command jar cvfm myapp.jar myapp.MF * for creating an excutable.

However I havea n excel library jar file that is used by my java program to compile and run. This is in the ext/lib file. So when I use javac and java to run this woks fine.

Hwoever when I try to create the excutable the excutable jar gets created but this excel feature does not work.

what is the best corrrect way to package this?

Thanks

Are you running it using the same JDK/ JRE which you used earlier (when it worked)?

You might try placing the Excel library JAR file in the same folder as your application's executable JAR file and add a Class-Path entry in the manifest:

Class-Path: excelJARFile.jar

That might b an issue as I ahve many versions of JRE under program fiels. However when I am running using javac from command line I am using the Jdk1.5 that is instaaed under c drive.

So I guess when I create the executable jar it references soe other JRE fro program files and not this one that is for sure.
