java ant project

Hi,

I am trying below example

http://ant.apache.org/manual/tutorial-HelloWorldWithAnt.html

I am not clear on what to do after compiling as below.

Creating a jar-file is not very difficult. But creating a startable jar-file needs more steps: create a manifest-file containing the start class, creating the target directory and archiving the files.

echo Main-Class: oata.HelloWorld>myManifest
md build\jar
jar cfm build\jar\HelloWorld.jar myManifest -C build\classes .
java -jar build\jar\HelloWorld.jar


like which jar i supposed to create etc?
please advise

			conn.start();

			Queue queue = (Queue) context.lookup("dynamicQueues/Movies");
			QueueReceiver reciever = session.createReceiver(queue);
			reciever.setMessageListener(new MyListener());
			conn.close();
		} catch (Exception e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		}
	}

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		new ConsumerTwo();
	}
}

Open in new window


I wrote one other consumer (ConsumerTwo) and ran in debug mode by putting breakpoint that is also reading on the same queue same old messages(after line 25 at line 26) as they were not deleted by old Consumer.java when i ran as java application, Please advise
