Hi everyone,

I know very little about java.

Could someone tell me how to unpack a .jar file into a folder? Like you would a zip file.

Many Thanks

eddy

I like to use WinRAR to unpack *.jar, see if an applet archive is correct. :)

If this merely has java class files in it, of course, the answer is you *don't* unpack it - you use it as is ;-)
