I have a vab_4.0_sp1_win32. exe file and cdvab_4.0_unix.jar file. I installed the windows file on windows box.

I need to install the jar file on Solaris box.

I am new to Unix. How should I install the application in Unix.

    Assisted Solution

    java -jar cdvab_4.0_unix.jar
    It will execute a program encapsulated in a JAR archive.

    jar xf cdvab_4.0_unix.jar
    to un-archive/extract the files in Archive file.
