jh_manifest will wrap the lines unconditionally. But that is not the issue. The class path entry generated: """ Class-Path: /usr/share/java/jar1.jar /usr/share/java/jar2.jar /usr/shar e/java/jar3.jar """ is perfectly legal and to my knowledge correct (which I believe was the point Emmanuel was trying to make). The above will unwrap to (the eqv. of): Class-Path: /usr/share/java/jar1.jar /usr/share/java/jar2.jar /usr/share/java/jar3.jar ~Niels __ This is the maintainer address of Debian's Java team <http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pkg-java-maintainers>.
