what is the difference between jad and manifest file?..

Answer / binu k james

Manifest file describes the files zipped in the .jar file,
like the name of the game, size.etc,
.jad file is used to install the j2me game on the mobile.
The .jad file while installing the application will look in
the manifest.mf file for the properties of .jar file.
If the mismatch is in jar size values, then the application
will install but the size given in the .jad file is
considered over the size given

The manifest.mf or manifest file describes information
about JAR file such as:
Application name, Application icon, MIDlet class name
MIDlet Vendor
MIDlet Version
MIDlet Name
MicroEdition Configuration(CLDC version)
MicroEdition Profile(MIDP version)

while a JAD(Java Application Descriptor) file describes all
the information which is in manifest file as well as some
more information such as MIDlet Jar Size(in KB) and MIDlet
Jar URL(Uniform Resourse Locator i.e. path of jar file)

Answer / akanksha

Jad file is not a part of the entire package and any user
defined setting should be added to the jad file so that we
do not have to repackage, if the value changes later on.

Manifest file is the part of the package itself
