EE Application module and updating MANIFEST.MF automatically

Hello folks, when building ear archives using EE application module,
MANIFEST.MF is supposed to be updated automatically to reflect the
contents of included web and EJB modules in the project.

In the latest EAP, there's no more "Link via manifest and copy file to"
option available, please see the attached screen shot.

How's one supposed to do this with the EAP releases?

TIA, Tero

Hello Tero,

As far as I know the method "Link via manifest and copy" has never been allowed
for Web and EJB modules included in EE app module.
This method is only allowed for libraries and java modules that are packaged
in Web or EJB module.
There is no need to mention web and EJB modules in MANIFEST.MF because these
modules are described in application.xml.

I'm using Resin here and what I've read from the resin-interest mailing
list archives, my EJB modules (jar files) and most likely my web module
(war file) should be listed in this MANIFEST.MF - no matter thought
they're already listed in META-INF/application.xml file. I need to confirm
this from Caucho folks thought.

Regards, Tero
