Readme in or out of jar?

Hi,
My readme.txt contains some information on how to extract the scjda-xxxxxxx.jar file.
I'm wondering if I include the Readme.txt, the instruction will be useless.
So, should I remove the instruction or is it possible to upload a jar plus the readme.
I know it sounds silly as the instruction says 1 jar file. But would like to hear an opinion on it.
Any advice?
Thanks.

I would imagine the people at Sun know how to extract files from a jar file. When the extraction is done, they can read your readme.txt to find out how to execute your application.

Hi Sai,
Thanks for the advice.
I got your message.

Looks like I'm doing something unnecessary.
Cheers.
