Search class in jars

Hello All,

Can any body tell me about a tool to locate class file in given directory (all the jars)? There was an article on SDN about this tool and I am not able to locate that.

If you run the tool and provide class to locate and the directory where you expect the jar to be, it will search and tell you the jar file containing that class.

Best Regards

Ashutosh

    Hi Ashutosh, hi Teecheu,

    the actual version of JAR Class Finder has a minor disadvantage when it should be used for EP6 SP2 developing... which is done in Eclipse 2.1.x... IBM thaught "Hey, we are progressive, so JAR Class Finder will be compatible with Eclipse 3.x upwards only in the future. The future starts now." What a pity... Also see java-class-finder-plugin---installation

    Anyhow, alternatives exist among the ZIPetc tools, I personally prefer WinRAR for it is very handsome, allows "in-JAR-Editing" and such things. And it's very fast.

    Hope it helps
