What's the best procedure for inserting a file into a jar file? I don't want to have to completely remove the jar file first.
Thanks!

Hi Paul
Assuming you have a JAR file called MyApplication.jar and a file you wish to add to it called MyNewClass.class, type the following at the command prompt (assuming you are in the directory that contains them both):

Hope this helps

Thanks : this does help but is it normal for it to not overwrite the existing version?
If I jar uf myFile.jar myProgram.class
and there's already a myProgram.class in the jar file, I will now have two of them.

No, that's not normal - the expected behaviour is to overwrite. I have never experienced this behaviour before. Which platform are you using?

NT - and it's happening with a class that has dozens of inner classes. So I end up with about 50 new class files added each time. At least this is what I see when I use winzip to view the results.
