Use jar of a jar for your classpath
Posted on 2002-04-25
I want to reduce the size of my zip file (a.zip) that contains my classes (1,130 KB).
I've noticed that if I create a new zip file (b.zip) that contains the old zip file (a.zip) then the size of b.zip becomes 1,000 KB !
The problem is that I can't put b.zip in the classpath instead of a.zip and expect java to get the classes from it.
Can you tell me how can I use b.zip?
