I have a Java program that has many .jar files.  I recently received two class files that need to be added to one of the .jar files.   How can I add these to a jar file?

jar uf <class file name> <jar file name>

Make sure you include the class in its package/folder structure

To make it very very simple..

rename the file to .zip
open and extract with winzip or any zip software (a folder structure will be extracted)
copy your file in the required folder location
zip the folder back to the same name as your jar and you are done.

Remember the folder structure after zipping should be exactly the same as before for things to work.
