Description
Name: ssT124754			Date: 02/23/2001


java version "1.3.0"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.0)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.0, mixed mode)

It would be nice to be able to include jars that are packaged within a jar file
in the class-path of the manifest (Similar to the Bundle-ClassPath of the
JES).  That way the jar would not have to be unzipped in the tree but rather
could remain separate and standalone.

Many people ask for this feature, it is probably worth implementing
in future releases.

To ship the needed jars externally to the main jar, and have the manifest's
classpath point to their desired directory.
