Hi All,

For one of business scenario, I want to un Jar a JAR file.
The challenge here is it should happen without using JDK.
Also, the unjar should happen without winzip/winrar.
I only have JRE installed on that system (windows).


Is there any way, I can do it.
Its a client requirement & I am stuck into how to do this ??

Need help from you guys...

Thanks in advance...

You have a client that wants to unzip a jar but doesn't want to install any software to unzip a jar?

You have a dumb client. Why do they want to unzip a jar anyway?

If they have no means of unzipping a jar then they have no means of unzipping a jar.

Are you really sure that you have got the requirement right? I have known of atleast one customer who had a similar (but not the same) requirement. They did not want to use Winzip or Winrar (some security issues) but they were ready to use a different approved product to unjar it. Have you asked your customer why they want to avoid those existing tools? That will help you understand their requirements better.

Strange.
When I googled it for "JarFile example" I got

About 682,000 results (0.14 seconds)

 
There are no more "hours", it's centi-days. They say it's better, but this tiny ad says it's stupid:
