Hi,

Where could I find the Jar Archiver?
Could somebody give me a specific address?
I've been looking around the www.javasoft.com website without any luck.

Thanks

The jar archiver was a visual GUI tool (written in Java)
to create JAR files. They retracted it (it was buggy). They
give a pointer to another utility. (But I don't like it, because
it requires two steps, first creating a zip and then turning
it into a jar).

I use the jar.exe program from the javasoft, which is part
of the JDK kit, which is available from www.javasoft.com on
their downloads page.

So,

Is jar.exe buggy?
Isn't jar.exe the Jar Archiver?

You can use Winzip as well with Compression set to none.

Jar Archiver -> created by Netscape, now rejected as too buggy
jar.exe -> from JavaSoft, and not it is not buggy

You can get the Java JDK from

http://www.javasoft.com/products/jdk/1.1/

Once you unpack the JDK the jar.exe file will be in the
<jdkroot>/bin directory?

Is that explicit enough?
