Hi!
I would like to get a small example of how to get files from a jar/zip file.
(My program now works on a directory - get all the files reqursive, and I want that it will get all the files from a jar file instead).
Thanks!

you need those packages to import:
import java.util.zip.ZipEntry;
import java.util.zip.ZipFile;
import java.util.jar.JarEntry;
import java.util.jar.JarFile;

//for enumerate the entries. use to look your specfic file
//if exist at jar/zip or just know what is in the zip/jar
  try {
      //path - the path to the jar/zip file
      // fileName - the zip/jar file name
      ZipFile zipfile = new ZipFile(path + File.separatorChar + fileName);
      String entryName = null;
      if(zf != null) {
        Enumeration e = zf.entries();
        while (e.hasMoreElements()) {
          // Loop entries
             ZipEntry ze=(ZipEntry)e.nextElement();
          entryName = ze.getName();
        }
        zf.close();
        zf = null;
      }
    } catch(java.io.IOException ioe) {}

//for get the file as byte[] you can use this example
//note you can use the InputStream as you want
    try {
        JarFile jarFile = new JarFile(path + File.separatorChar + filename);
        JarEntry jarEntry = jarFile.getJarEntry(fileNameLookingFor);
        length = (int) jarEntry.getSize();
        bytes = new byte[length];
        DataInputStream in = new DataInputStream(jarFile.getInputStream((ZipEntry) jarEntry));
        in.readFully(bytes);
        in.close();
      } catch(java.io.IOException ioe) {
      }
