I am using the java
jar utility which does not supoort extracting to specific directories via command line argument. Therefore, I need to cd into the folder I want the extracted jar files to go into.
This means that I have to refer to the jar.exe file from a directory which is NOT the
bin directory of Java. Whenever I try something like:
"C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_45"jar, it REFUSES to accept any arguments. The program just prints out usage information, no matter what.
I even created a
SET %* "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_45\bin\"jar.exe %*
No dice. This is incredibly frustrating...
I've heard I can extract it like a zip file, but I'm not sure. I suppose when I re
jar I'll have to use -m to use the manifest file that came with the jar.
Thanks for any help!
