Any help will be appreciated.

Hi,
Use gunzip utility to uncompress the tar file.
ex:
gunzip test.jar.gz
The output for this will give test.jar
now use
tar -xvf test.jar
Hope this will help you.
Ravi :-)

Depends on what platform you wish to do it on. Ona unix/Linux system use gunzip and then tar as described above. On a Windows system, the easiest way is to open the file with WinZip, which understands the format and can extract it to a directory of your choosing.
