has anyone experienced corrupted jar files. What could be the reason for corruption and how to prevent this happening.

The term "corrupted" is thrown around a *lot* in the world of IT. Often, supposedly "corrupt" files aren't; people either aren't reading them properly or they missed a step when setting them up. 1. What do you mean by corrupt? 2. More specifically, how do you know that your .jar's are corrupt? 3. Can you think of what you did to might have made them corrupt?

Hi Friso, Jars mainly become corrupted when transfered across machines using FTP in ascii mode. A way to avoid this is to make sure files are always trasfered in binary mode. Cheers
