New to this...
I installed Eclipse and JDK

Imported m5.jar file
Changed one class to display a different message

Exported to a project folder.

To execute I run from a command prompt from my Java\jre7\bin folder
I renamed the old m5.jar to _m5.jar
Pasted in the new m5.jar
when I try and run this...
java -cp m5.jar org.m5.sdk.hostedconnect.v1.ScreenPop  https://hostedconnect.m5net.com 1234567890 12345

I get the old message.

The changes aren't seen.

Do I need to restart something?

I would double check everything
If you export properly (setting the name of the main class) then all you should need is

java -jar m5.jar org.m5.sdk.hostedconnect.v1.ScreenPop  https://hostedconnect.m5net.com 1234567890 12345

Open in new window

Not a good idea to work in the jdk bin directory btw - put that directory in PATH and put your code/jars elsewhere

Use Java decompiler and check whether the created jar has the proper java class

don't rename the above mentioned jar file, just remove it from there and try again. if the result is the same, then the file is "linked" somehow, but I think the result will be different.
