jar-The Java Archive Tool

Combines multiple files into a single JAR archive file.

SYNOPSIS

jar [ options ] [manifest] destination input-file [input-files]

DESCRIPTION

The jar tool is a java application that combines multiple files into a single JAR archive file. jar is a general-purpose archiving and compression tool, based on ZIP and the ZLIB compression format. However, jar was designed mainly to facilitate the packaging of java applets or applications into a single archive. When the components of an applet or application (.class files, images and sounds) are combined into a single archive, they may be downloaded by a java agent (like a browser) in a single HTTP transaction, rather than requiring a new connection for each piece. This dramatically improves download times. <!-- REMIND: put a link to download benchmark statistics in here --> jar also compresses files and so further improves download time. In addition, it allows individual entries in a file to be signed by the applet author so that their origin can be authenticated. The syntax for the jar tool is almost identical to the syntax for the tar command.

The 3 types of input files for the jar tool are

  • manifest file (optional)
  • destination jar file
  • files to be archived

Typical usage is

	% jar cf myjarfile *.class 
In this example, all the class files in the current directory are placed into the file named "myjarfile". A manifest file is automatically generated by the jar tool and is always the first entry in the jar file. By default, it is named META-INF/MANIFEST.INF. The manifest file is the place where any meta-information about the archive is stored. Refer to the manifest specification for details about how meta-information is stored in the manifest file.

If you have a pre-existing manifest file that you want the jar tool to use for the new jar archive, you can specify it using the -m option:

	% jar cmf myManifestFile myJarFile *.class

When files are added to a jar archive, the file and its MD5 and SHA hashes are stored. The hashes are entered into the manifest file. It is easy to view and process the contents of the manifest file, since it uses RFC822 ascii format.

OPTIONS

c
Creates a new or empty archive on the standard output.

t
Lists the table of contents from standard output.

x file
Extracts all files, or just the named files, from standard input. If file is omitted, then all files are extracted; otherwise, only the specified file or files are extracted.

f
The second argument specifies a jar file to process. In the case of creation, this refers to the name of the jar file to be created (instead of on stdout). For table or xtract, the second argument identifies the jar file to be listed or extracted.

v
Generates verbose output on stderr.

m
Includes manifest information from specified pre-existing manifest file. Example use:
jar cmf myManifestFile myJarFile *.class
You can add special-purpose name-value attribute headers to the manifest file that aren't contained in the default manifest. Examples of such headers would be those for vendor information, version information, and package sealing. See the JAR Files trail in the Java Tutorial for examples of using the m option.

0
Store only, without using ZIP compression.

M
Do not create a manifest file for the entries.

If any of "files" is a directory, then that directory is processed recursively.

EXAMPLES

To add all the files in a particular directory to an archive:

C:/WWWROOT/JAVA> ls
12/09/96  12:20a        <DIR>          .    
12/09/96  12:17a        <DIR>          ..

If already have subdirectories for images, audio files and classes in my html directory, I might jar up each directory into a single jar file:
C:/WWWROOT/JAVA> DIR
12/09/96  12:11a        <DIR>          .
12/09/96  12:17a        <DIR>          ..
12/03/96  06:54p        <DIR>          audio
12/06/96  02:02p        <DIR>          images
12/09/96  12:10a        <DIR>          classes
               6 File(s)        207,360 bytes
                            414,983,168 bytes free

               6 File(s)        207,360 bytes
                            414,983,168 bytes free

C:/WWWROOT/JAVA/Animator> 
I can then see the entry names in the jarfile using the jar tool and the "t" option:
C:/WWWROOT/JAVA/Animator> jar tf bundle.jar
META-INF/MANIFEST.MF
audio/1.au
audio/2.au
audio/3.au
audio/spacemusic.au
classes/Animator.class
classes/Wave.class
images/monkey.jpg
images/at_work.gif
C:/WWWROOT/JAVA/Animator> 
Enumerating verbosely (with the "v" option) will tell me more information about the files in the archive, such as their size and last modified date:
C:/WWWROOT/JAVA/Animator> jar tvf bundle.jar
   145 Thu Aug 01 22:27:00 PDT 1996 META-INF/MANIFEST.MF
   946 Thu Aug 01 22:24:22 PDT 1996 audio/1.au
  1039 Thu Aug 01 22:24:22 PDT 1996 audio/2.au
   993 Thu Aug 01 22:24:22 PDT 1996 audio/3.au
 48072 Thu Aug 01 22:24:23 PDT 1996 audio/spacemusic.au
