I've downloaded mm.mysql.jdbc driver version 2.0.8 and it's a .jar file.
And it's written there that i must unjar this file. How can i unjar .jar archive under win2000?

i've tried jar.exe, but nothing happened.

thanks in advance

The jar utility has no default graphically interface, so you will have to interact with it using a command line or dos window. Open a dos window ( command.exe ) using the start/run and launching a dos window. In this dos window you can execute the jar.exe utility without arguments, it will complain by showing you the basic arguments available. Some of these are as follows:

  • x = extract
  • t = table of contents
  • f = use next argument as filename
  • v = verbose
  • c = create

A sample of what your command line will probably need to look like is as follows:

  • jar xf thefile.jar
      extracts contents of the named jar file relative to current directory

  • jar tf thefile.jar
      Show a Table of contents from the named jar file

WinZip.exe also works on jar files for a nice graphically interface for a windows environment for extracting and examining the contents of a .jar file.
