Description

The current Hello World Tutorial stops the tutorial at using 'Instantiate Component' to place an actor on the canvas.
https://kepler-project.org/developers/teams/build/developing-a-hello-world-actor-using-the-kepler-build-system-and-eclipse
Most users want to also add their actor to their library pane. This is described in Sections 10.3 and 10.4 of the User Manual:
https://code.kepler-project.org/code/kepler-docs/trunk/outreach/documentation/shipping/UserManual.pdf

The Hello World tutorial should be extended with an additional step that shows how to create a KAR file and import it into Kepler's Library. The User Manual should also be checked to be sure that the instructions are still correct.

It would be great if the process of creating KAR files and registering them with the library could be automated for these types of modules. For example, this could be an ant task ('ant create-library') that takes a file containing a list of actors (either their classes and/or their lsids?) and automatically generates the KAR files, puts them in the proper location, etc., and effectively registers them with the library, would be awesome.
