Hello Michael,

this is an interesting question.

I would write my own custom Ant task . You can use java.util.jar.JarFile
and java.util.jar.Manifest to access whathever information you want.

Actually, I am interested by the same sort of topic, for instance to
collect Vendor/Version/Name information from a set of jar files and
generate a report from this.
