Hi all

Im about to do a delivery in work, and my boss wants the jars I used, since I made this build several changes have been made, so I want to extract the jar files from the package, so as to have the exact version for him to build against if needed.

I thought that winrar would do the job. I can use either unix or windows. Not really pushed.

Cheers

winzip should have worked, can you explain a little more about specifically what you need to do.

I need to open up the package go down through the directory structure and take out the correct jar files that I need. I need to deliver the package and jars to my boss. When I opened it in winzip I saw no structure or jarfiles. Winrar showed the structure but no jarfiles.
