Jar scanner for finding jars

Hi All,

I am very happy to share a tool written by me, I have named it Archive Scanner, As the name suggest this tool will help to search for Java classes jar names. Sometime we spend lots of time searching for a jar name, and looking here and there. I can understand this pain as I have faced so many times. So it is a sort of tool I have gifted to myself and all you out there.

This tool(jar) is self executable, only things is that you need to set up a java environment to use that.
It works on JDK.1.5 or later. Please download from the below file.

Tool DownLoad:
archive scanner

Steps to Use:
– First of all save the Jar it to some location. e.g c:\myTool
– Open command Console and change the directory to the location where Jar has been saved
– Set Java Home (ignore if already defined)

– Run the below java command
– java -jar <<Name of jar>> –searchType DSF –dirName C:\\bea\\modules\\ –fileName Classwriter.class
or
– java -jar <<Name of jar>> –searchType DSF –dirName C:\\bea\\modules\\ –fileName Classwriter
or
– java -jar <<Name of jar>> –searchType DSF –dirName C:\\bea\\modules\\ –fileName com/bea/objectweb/asm/ClassWriter
or
– java -jar <<Name of jar>> –searchType DSF –dirName C:\\bea\\modules\\ –fileName com.bea.objectweb.asm.ClassWriter
or
– java -jar <<Name of jar>> –searchType DSF –dirName C:\\bea\\modules\\ –fileName com.bea.objectweb.asm.ClassWriter.class

Hope this help, Please give your suggestions or your experience with this tool, this would help me to apply any sort of improvements further.

Happy learning.


Thanks

  3. This looks like what I need – but the downloaded file is a word doc? It has an image of startup.jar. I don’t know how to extract it from a word document?!
