The documentation says you can have multiple Class-Path entries in
a Manifest file, e.g.
but this doesn't work. Only the last Class-Path header seems to be used.
Instead, you have to do this
Class-Path: mail.jar activation.jar
Name: jl125535 Date: 01/18/2002
FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.3.0_02"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.0_02)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.0_02, mixed mode)

A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
When I specify 2 jar files in my manifest file as follows:
<many class paths><^>
Note:<^> means white-space
the manifest.mf in the jar file only contains the last
STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
1.create a manifest and include the 2 or more Class-Path
1.5 back up your manifest file
2. creat a jar include this manifest file in it.
3. open the manifest file in the jar (using WINZIP32.exe,
etc.) and compare to your back-up version.
Note: each jar file name is <= 70 chars
EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
" More about the Class-Path Header
If an applet or application uses more than one extension,
you can list multiple URLs in a manifest. For example, the
following is a valid header:
Class-Path: area.jar servlet.jar images/
In the Class-Path header any URLs listed that don't end
with '/' are assumed to be JAR files. URLs ending in '/'
indicate directories. In the preceding example, images/
might be a directory containing resources needed by the
applet or the application.
You can also specify multiple extension URLs by using more
than one Class-Path header in the manifest. For example:
Download extensions can be "daisy chained", meaning that
the manifest of one download extension can have a Class-
Path header that refers to a second extension, which can
refer to a third extension, and so on. "
It should be possible to have multiple Class-Path:
in manifest file.
ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
No error messages
This bug can be reproduced always.
CUSTOMER WORKAROUND :
Work around is to include ALL jars on one Class-Path:
