Hi,

How does one view the contents of a .jar file from inside Eclipse. Typically we have a bunch of library .jar's which contain several .java files. I want to be able to browse the code inside these files. Trying to open a .jar so far has displayed meaningless gibberish on the screen. Any hints on how to do this is much appreciated.

Thanks.

If the JAR is added to the build path of your project, you can just click it open in the Package Explorer on the left side of the screen.
