Customizing manifest.mf

Hello,

how can I customize the generated manifest.mf File when building a jar? I need to add an entry for the splash-screen-image and doing it by hand everytime is very annoying.
Where can I properly do this?

Greetings, Oliver

Have you considered using the Ant ]]> task for that part of the build? http://ant.apache.org/manual/CoreTasks/jar.html

This approach would only be appropriate if you were already using ANT to do your jar builds. If you are instead using IDEA's Build->Build Jars then you should be able to include your own manifest.mf as part of the packaged JAR in much the same way you can add deployment descriptors to the packaging of facets/modules (EJB, Web etc.), or you should be about to add the properties and their values via a GUI template of some sort.

If there are no non-ant options available then I would be happy to file a JIRA ticket. Thoughts?

I know this is an old post, but I too would like to see the support for customizing the manifest.mf generated from the build jars menu if this has happend already.
I cant find any sign of it in 8.1.4
