Jar files are simply Zip files with a manifest. Here is one example of how to do this.

import java.util.zip.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;

public class ZipList {
    ZipFile _zipfile;

    public ZipList(File file) throws ZipException, IOException {
        _zipfile = new ZipFile(file);
    }

    public String[] list() {
        ArrayList list = new ArrayList(_zipfile.size());
        Enumeration enum = _zipfile.entries();
        while (enum.hasMoreElements()) {
            ZipEntry entry = (ZipEntry)enum.nextElement();
            list.add(entry.getName());
        }
        return (String[])list.toArray(new String[list.size()]);
    }
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
        ZipList zip = new ZipList(new File(args[0]));
        String[] names = zip.list();
        for (int i = 0; i < names.length; ++i) {
            System.out.println(names[i]);
        }

    }
}
