I need to create a jar file from eclipse tool. I have a ant file to create  the jar, but in this case I need to manually create the jar file. The and file looks as below

<echo message="Generating the temp.jar file..." />
 <jar destfile="${dist.dir}/${jar.name}" compress="true" >
      <fileset dir="${output.dir}" />
      <fileset dir="src" >
        <include name="**/*.xml" />
        <include name="**/*.properties" />
        <include name="conf/**" />
      </fileset>
    </jar>

I have seen the export in the file menu of eclipse, but I was doubtful. To make sure I am right, I would like you to guide me

These two are not related...
So, You can export in either way. With ant, you should run that as ant
script.
While exporting from eclipse menu, you don't need ant.
