Hi,

I have a jar file. I need to open and see the source code in the jar file to override some of the style related code like primefaces-3.4 related
org.primefaces.component.behavior.printer.PrinterBehavior.getScript()

How do I see jar content.

please advise
Any links resources ideas highly appreciated. Thanks in advance

JAR files are just ZIP files with a standardized structure; you can open them using any application that can open ZIP files. However, if the source code is not in the JAR file, you're going to have to look elsewhere. JAR files typically just contain the compiled CLASS files, not the source.

You can use java decompiler to view code.

I use WinRAR to open a jar file.
But in most cases, jar files contain the binary .class files not the java source code files.

You can use 7-Zip to solve this issue. Even any decompiler also resolve your problem.
