I have a jar file say a.jar. In a.jar I have included b.jar , c.jar and in the manifest file i have included like this
Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.8.1
Created-By: 1.6.0_27-b07 (Sun Microsystems Inc.)
Class-Path: c.jar b.jar
but my program does not find classes in b.jar. Though when I add b.jar explicitly to my classpath of my app it runs. Is Manifest file just informational or does it set any classpaths.
