How does one build a jar?

Hi, all.

This may be a Really Dumb question, but how do I get IDEA to build a jar
for me?

I want to use it with JProfiler, but they have not revved their
integration for IDEA 4 yet, so the easiest way to make it happy is a jar
with the needed libs in it. (Frankly, I would not expect IDE
integration until Aurora ships.)

You need to use Ant or do it yourself on the command line or with some other tool.

Dissapointing, but not insurmountable. I usually end up crafting a
build.xml before the project ends anyway, if nothing else so others can
build, run, and test the code.

The bennie of having it built in, of course, comes from IDEA, not me,
keeping track of dependency changes. As I add or delete new
dependencies, a good jar builder keeps up automatically. I am a strong
believer in there being exactly one place where any important piece of
information is stored, and all derived places have a pointer to it.
