Java Question

How do I sign a dozen JAR files with jarsigner?

I want to sign two dozen jar files using jarsigner, giving the password only once.

Giving multiple files to jarsigner is not possible, according to the man page and using a for-loop on the command line still forces me to input the password for every file.

I would prefer a solution for the command line, but would be okay with ant/maven solution.

System is Linux.

How do I sign a dozen jar-files, giving the password only once?

Answer

Here is a snippet from the Ant build file for PSCode - it signs a slew of Jars. The trick is in the foreach element.

<target name="createjars"
  depends="compile"
  description="Jars the compiled classes">
    <mkdir dir="${build}/jar/" />

    <foreach target="jar.package" param="package" inheritall="true">
        <path>
            <dirset dir="${src}/java/org/pscode" includes="**/*" />
        </path>
    </foreach>
</target>

..and..

<target name='jar.package'>
    <script language='javascript'>
        <![CDATA[
            prop = pscode.getProperty('package');
            index1 = prop.lastIndexOf('pscode') + 7;
            index2 = prop.length();
            prop1 = prop;
            path = prop1.substring( index1, index2 );
            path2 = path.replaceAll('\\\\','/');
            pscode.setProperty('path', path2 );

            name = path2.replaceAll('/','.');
            pscode.setProperty('jar.name', name + '.jar' );
        ]]>
    </script>

    <xmlproperty file="${src}/java/org/pscode/${path}/manifest.xml" />
    <!-- echo message='jar.name: ${jar.name} *** ${application.title}' / -->
    <if>
        <not>
            <uptodate targetfile='${build}/dist/lib/${jar.name}' >
                <srcfiles dir= '${build}/share/org/pscode/${path}' includes='*.class'/>
            </uptodate>
        </not>
        <then>
            <jar
                destfile='${build}/dist/lib/${jar.name}'
                index='true'
                update='true'>
                <manifest>

                        <attribute name="Implementation-Vendor-Id" value="org.pscode" />
