<builder name="Jar">
<summary>
Builds a Java archive (<filename>.jar</filename>) file
from the specified list of sources.
Any directories in the source list
will be searched for <filename>.class</filename> files).
Any <filename>.java</filename> files in the source list
will be compiled  to <filename>.class</filename> files
by calling the &b-link-Java; Builder.

If the &cv-link-JARCHDIR; value is set, the
&jar;
command will change to the specified directory using the
<option>-C</option>
option.
If &cv-JARCHDIR; is not set explicitly,
&SCons; will use the top of any subdirectory tree
in which Java <filename>.class</filename>
were built by the &b-link-Java; Builder.

If the contents any of the source files begin with the string
<literal>Manifest-Version</literal>,
the file is assumed to be a manifest
and is passed to the
&jar;
command with the
<option>m</option>
option set.

<example>
env.Jar(target = 'foo.jar', source = 'classes')

env.Jar(target = 'bar.jar',
        source = ['bar1.java', 'bar2.java'])
