Subject Manifest Created-By Attribute
Date Wed, 29 Jan 2003 14:11:25 GMT
Looking at, and 
reading the jar specification, I think we should change Ant to properly set 
the created-by header.

I have code ready to commit which would produce a default manifest of the form

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.6alpha
Created-By: 1.4.1-b21 (Sun Microsystems Inc.)

The jar tool from the same VM produces

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Created-By: 1.4.1 (Sun Microsystems Inc.)

The spec requires

"Defines the version and the vendor of the java implementation on top of 
which this manifest file is generated"

It seems the jar tool actually uses the version of the VM specification, not 
the implementation - but that's probably a detail.
