Hi All,
Inorder to move a java project thats already compiled on eclipse, I chose export and converted as a Jar file and then to tar file.
Now when I moved the tar file to UNIX box, and did a xvf on it, why am I not able to see the directory structure? What I want to do is go to "src" folder where my code is supposed to be present and edit the code that I developed before.
Thanks,
Divya

If you went to a JAR file then to a TAR file, you would need to untar then unjar before you can see the directory structure. That is if I am understanding you correclty. Why are you taking a JAR to a TAR anyway?
