I have a bunch of jar files in a merge module that I am composing. Since jar files dont have versions, I wonder how does InstallShield deal with it? Is it intelligent enough to dig into the manifest file? What is the suggested approach with jar files.
If you are using a Windows Installer-based project to distribute this file, Windows Installer will use its file-versioning rules, which will treat this file as unversioned (unless you use a companion file, or other table-based mechanisms to override this). In an InstallScript project, the file will also be treated as unversioned, so overwriting will follow the options you select.
