               File f = new File(filename);
                Archive a = new Archive(f);
                a.getMainHeader().print();
                FileHeader fh = a.nextFileHeader();
                while(fh!=null){        
                        File out = new File(fh.getFileNameString().trim());
                        System.out.println(out.getAbsolutePath());
                        FileOutputStream os = new FileOutputStream(out);
                        a.extractFile(fh, os);
                        os.close();
                        fh=a.nextFileHeader();
                }

>>it catching an exception in the first hand that the library failed to load

You'll need to put the dll into java.library.path. You could just do


copy x.dll %WINDIR%

easier to just make a Runtime.exec() call :)   Always avoid native libs where possible makes your life as a java developer a lot simpler
