Solaris only. Java archive tool. All the named objects and directory trees (if directories are given) are combined into a single Java archive, presumably for downloading. jar
is based on the ZIP and ZLIB compression formats; zip
files with no trouble. If a manifest

creates one automatically. The manifest becomes the first entry in the archive, and it contains any needed metainformation about the archive.
Usage is similar to tar
, in that the leading
may be omitted from the options.
Create a new or empty archive to standard output.
The second argument, dest

Use specified manifest

Don't create a manifest file.
Don't compress the files with ZIP compression.
Print a table of contents for the archive on standard output.
