Re-zip it using "jar".  You need to make sure to tell jar about the manifest file.

Hi all,

I'd like to package a Jython program as a self-contained Windows executable. This is a small project for a user-base that cannot be expected to install/configure Java or Jython, it needs to be really simple. So I guess that means that Jython and Java will be bundled with the application ( much like ImageJ ).

I've been pretty confused about how to "deploy" jython. Yesterday, I tried following this I got to the point where the tutorial seemed to be asking that I unzip the stand-alone Jython jar, add my project files, re-zip it, and things should work. The only thing is, as soon as I unzip-rezip the stand-alone Jython jar, it breaks ( even if I do not modify its contents ), and Java no longer recognizes it as a valid Jar file.

So, that tutorial doesn't work for me.  It also doesn't get me all the way to a self-contained Windows executable. Does anyone have any leads?

Best, Michael.
