A JAR file is just an ordinary ZIP file that includes a META-INF/MANIFEST.MF file in it. So you can list what's in a JAR using any ZIP utility. Or use the "tv" option on the "jar" utility that comes with the JDK.
"privilege" comes from the Latin words for "private" and "law" (legal) and dates to feudal times. To "claim privilege" meant that you were above the laws that applied to the common people.

I wasn't specific enough, sorry for that.
I meant I want to list resources at runtime, on a mobile phone. As far as I can see MIDP doesn't support any Zip/JarInputStream. With the Java classloaders, you know that a Class belongs to a package after you load it, which makes it impossible to list all classes in a package. As resource loading use classloaders, I guess there is the same issue, but maybe there exists some way to do that?
