There was an odd aspect of manifest files, in that
they had to end in a new (blank) line. Though I..
- thought it had been fixed long ago.
- would expect an ant task that creates manifests
to add the newline.


Again, the copied MANIFEST.MF from a few mins ago:

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.5.4
Created-By: 1.5.0_09-b03 (Sun Microsystems Inc.)
Main-Class: am.Main
Built-By: Karsten Wutzke
Built-On: 2007-06-29 07:57:50
Class-Path: lib/bcel-5.2.jar lib/forms-1.1.0.jar is not entirely clear where this file ends.

(And in case I did not mention before, I am no
expert on manifest files. Not having to write
them anymore is one the benefits of web start,
as I see it!)

Had you ruled out web start deployment?
It seems even if the jars required signing (using
ant), it would be easier to avhieve than get the
manifest working correctly. ;-)
