Creating a JAR file with Eclipse

These instructions are only a guide for creating a JAR based on a single .java file.

Take it as is, an introduction.

The following steps may need to be changed depending on any Eclipse version changes.

  1. Choose the Java file from Project Explorer or the Navigator view.
  2. Right click (to show the contextual menu) and choose "export".
  3. Choose Java -> JAR file.
  4. Select the destination folder, for example C:\openkm-dev\jar\your-class.jar.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Optional step. If your java class implements "public static void main(String[] args)" then you must choose your java class as the class of the entry point.
  8. Click Finish.

Step 7 for example is needed when you're creating a new crontab job.
