I think it is. The paths should be relative,
not absolute..

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Main-Class: start.Start
C:\Sun\jwsdp-2.0\jaxb\lib\jaxb-xjc.jar; if the main jar lives in.. 'jaxb', that path would be..
..note the forward slash, and lack of ';'. The example
in the JavaDocs shows two jars listed on the same
line, delimited by a space.
