Apparently a command such as

jar tf test.jar

Open in new window


can find a class in a jar file

Is there a command in which to find a method within a jar file ?

What do you mean by 'finding a method' and what is your goal?

Don't describe the code you think you need or the steps. Describe the GOAL

Your right.

I have a jar file, it has its own source and object code, but is also bundled with its dependent jars within the master jar file

I want to find out if a given method in a given Class is being called by the jar, and which of the dependent jars bundled within the master jar contains that class.

Specifically, I want to find out if the code is calling the getProviderVersion from either MQCOnnectionData or ConnectionData class

So I want to see if the code uses which or either of these, and which of the dependent jars within the master jar contains the methods

You are correct. What you're asking for is NOT possible with jar commands. You need logging or a debugger
