Do you know why would I get the following exception:

prompt> java -jar c06-snmpv1-trap-app-r1.jar -host 172.21.4.20
Exception in thread "main" java.util.zip.ZipException: invalid END header (bad central directory offset)
        at java.util.zip.ZipFile.open(Native Method)
        at java.util.zip.ZipFile.<init>(ZipFile.java:112)
        at java.util.jar.JarFile.<init>(JarFile.java:117)
        at java.util.jar.JarFile.<init>(JarFile.java:55)


I'm using java version "1.0beta2" on a Sun machine.

Is the jar corrupt?
Can you open it with Winzip?

Java 1.0b2, been a long time since I've seen that version.
That could also be your problem, have you considered upgrading.

You are correct. The file was corrupted.
What is the latest version and where can I get it?
