Using Ant to build a jar

Experts,

I am trying to use Ant to build a jar file for the first time.  I have 10 classes in a directory C:\views\rafterco_view2\bin\com\hsbc\cds\cdstomarkit\markit\filegen on my local machine.  
I also have jars stored here: C:\views\rafterco_view2\gm_pads\imp\src\External that are required for the build.

What is the minimum I need in my build.xml to create this jar file?

Thanks,
Margin_Walker

You need to know the basics of using ant (just how to make a simple basic build file). Read this:

http://ant.apache.org/manual/

Then you have to use javac task, here is the documentation:

Try this (minimal though):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project name="name of project" default="package">

      <property name="src" location="location_of_sources" />
      <property name="dist" location="location_of_the_jar_to_produce" />
        <property name="jarname" location="name_of_jar" />

      <target name="package">
        <jar destfile="${dist}/${jarname}.jar"  basedir="${src}/>
      </target>

</project>
