I am doing the Bodgitt and Scarper application and I understand that we have to upload our assignment as a single jar (Lets call it "contractor.jar"). My instructions say that, the jar should contain a "runme.jar" which contains the executables and it also says that

When you submit your assignment, each part (client and server) must be executable using a command of this exact form:
java -jar <path_and_filename> [<mode>]

Now I dont get what <path_and_filename> means? Is that for the runme.jar or the contractor.jar? Because contractor.jar is going to have all docs, userguide and runme.jar. In runme.jar I have added the "Main-Class" manifest entry and running it should be fine.

My question is will SUN run the "runme.jar" after extracting it from "contractor.jar" or will they run "contractor.jar" directly (which will be weird since it has all docs, userguide etc) ?
