combining jars

hi guys

We have multiple jars in our project

customCross.jar
customPath.jar


Is there anyway i can combine these two jars into one singe jar and call it
customProducts.jar?

We are deploying our project on a unix box, Any windows or unix option would be fine.
Any ideas?
thanks

They are just zip files - on a Linux box in the directory containing the two jar files, do:

mkdir tmpfolder
cd tmpfolder
unzip ../customCross.jar
unzip ../customPath.jar
zip -r ../customProducts.jar *
cd .. && rm -rf tmpfolder

You will of course have to change your code to reference the new jar name afterwards.

There are also tools available that specifically help do this, e.g. One-Jar:

Yes - use a proper tool. jars contain manifests and other metadata, so they are by no means 'just zip files'. You need to be careful - unless you're sure of the manifests, e.g. you create them.
If you're using Eclipse you don't need 3rd party tools (although it might internally use a One-Jar derivative) - just export with 'dependent jars' selected
