Hi. I've been trying to generate a runnable .jar file from VUE's source code.
The command "ant all" generated a .jar file named "VUE-core.jar".
But when I type "java -jar VUE-core.jar" to run it, I get this error:
no main manifest attribute, in VUE-core.jar
To investigate, I unzipped the .jar file and looked inside the MANIFEST.MF file in the META-INF folder.
This is all the text that MANIFEST.MF contained:
Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.96
Created-By: 1.8.0_51-b16 (Oracle Corporation)
Judging by the "build.xml" file for Apache Ant in the VUE source code's "src" folder, there are supposed to be more details in MANIFEST.MF, but, I don't know how to make those details be added automatically.
(But, happily, at least I'm able to run VUE, just by typing "ant" while in the "src" folder. I discovered that by accident. :) I'm a Java newbie.)
Additional details. I'm using:
* The zip file of VUE's source code from:
(I just downloaded it via the link on that page, rather than by using console commands. I haven't gotten very acquainted with Git yet.)
* The official Java JDK version 8u51 from:
* Apache Ant version 1.9.6 from:
* Lucid Puppy Linux 5.2.8 version 004:
Thanks for any help!
