ANT jarfile folder structure

ANT jarfile folder structure

ANT jarfile folder structure


i am working for the first time with ANT and i would appreciate if someone could help me.
I want to create a jar file, where i include the folder structure to the .class files.
E.g.  i have a path N:\tmp\plugins\compress
In this path are 4 .class files and one MF(=manifest).

I need to create the jar file, where if i open it i see the Folder structur \tmp\plugins\compress and in "compress" will be the .class and .MF file...

I allready have the code for creating the jar file:


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<project name="test plugins" default="build_test" basedir=".">

    <property name="src" value="./bin/test/plugins"/>
    <property name="dest" value="N:/tmp/plugins"/>
    <property name="compress.dir" value="${dest}/compress"/>
    <property name="compress.jarname" value="compress.jar"/>
    <target name="build_test">
        <copydir src="${src}" dest="${dest}"
        <jar                      destfile="${dest}/${compress.jarname}"                               </jar>    
How could i implement somethng like this? i experimented with "pathelement" but no luck
