How to update a jar file

Hello,

I've extracted a jar file, made changes to a .properties file, saved and added the files to a new jar archive (WInRAR).  Will this work?

The Java project in Eclipse, seems to have no changes.

I have posted another question today about CastorXML, and noticed during a google search the following properties must be set to true to enable Validation (castor.properties).  The castor Library is castor-0.9.5.2.jar. I don't see any changes in the console.

# True if all documents should be indented on output by default
#
org.exolab.castor.indent=true


# True if xml documents should be validated by the SAX Parser
#
org.exolab.castor.parser.validation=true
org.exolab.castor.parser.namespaces=true

# True if all documents should be validated by the marshalling framework
#
org.exolab.castor.marshalling.validation=true

Thanks

make sure you are including the new jar (and removed old one) in your projects build path

Just my 50ct: And if you are using Maven (Jar File name looks as if this could be the case), you would have to deploy your updated version to your repository using a new version, which you would have to reference in your pom.xml
