Is there any Windows tool equivalent to JDK's "jar" but is native to Windows without the need to install a jdk? I need to distribute some class files into clients' existing jars who may not have jdk installed.

Any reason you don't just release the updated Jar file, rather than just the changed classes?

Some classes are not created by me. I am patching someone else's work.

.jar files are essentially just .zip files with a manifest file. If the processing of the file doesn't require changes to the manifest, then any .zip file tool should be able to handle this.

You want the users to patch their own jar files?
