public class JlinkTask
extends MatchingTask

This class defines objects that can link together various jar and zip files.

It is basically a wrapper for the jlink code written originally by Patrick Beard. The classes org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.optional.jlink.Jlink and org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.optional.jlink.ClassNameReader support this class.

For example:

 <jlink compress="false" outfile="out.jar"/>
   <mergefiles>
     <pathelement path="${build.dir}/mergefoo.jar"/>
     <pathelement path="${build.dir}/mergebar.jar"/>
   </mergefiles>
   <addfiles>
     <pathelement path="${build.dir}/mac.jar"/>
     <pathelement path="${build.dir}/pc.zip"/>
   </addfiles>
 </jlink>
