      Description


      peter.allenbach@eng 2000-09-25

      The manifest for activation.jar should contain these attributes:

              Specification-Vendor: Sun Microsystems, Inc
              Specification-Version:
              Implementation-Vendor-Id: com.sun
              Implementation-Vendor: Sun Microsystems, Inc
              Implementation-Version:

      This will help make activation a downloadable and installable
      extension. (the other piece is signing the jar file, which i am also
      looking into. if anyone reading this knows how to sign a jar file that
      we distribute, please contact me ... thank you)

      The latest release of JavaMail (mail.jar) has these attributes in the
      manifest, and can be used as an example.

      I missed an attribute in the above list. Also needed is:

               Extension-Name:
               
      The manifest for JavaMail 1.2 FCS contains all these attributes, and so
      is now an even better example to follow.
