ports that contain JAR file

If I use 
> build {
>    system -C ${worksrcpath} "java -jar filename.jar”
> }

After changing the file name and others, It gives me that 
Error: org.macports.build for port civl returned: bad option -C

In details, I edit it like this: 
build {
   system -C ${worksrcpath}/lib "java -jar ${name}-${version}_${rev}.jar"

Am I doing something wrong? 

Note: It might appear my name as "Ziad Ali" instaed of "Abdulrahman Alshammari". 
This is an issue that I am trying to fix.
