Hi,
I created a jar file (A) with all my code. Then i created another jar file (B) which contained the a readme.txt and other text files. When i look at with winzip at my (B) jar file it contains all the right files.
Now when i extract the (B) jar file it automatically extracts all other jars in there as well which is not what i want it to do.
I cannot find any documentation on this feature.
Is there a way around this ?
my jars are created with
jar cvf server.jar *
and extracted with
jar xvf server.jar
thanks
friso

Try this:
jar -xf theBigJar.jar server.jar

thanks eugene, that works.
Additional question: is there a way to extract all files automatically (so you dont have to mention them one by one) and it does not unpack the next level jars.
thanks
