I have a big jar file that contains subfolders and files inside subfolders.
My problem is that instead of unjaring a whole file I want to get files inside a particular sub-folder. In otherwords i want to unjar a particular subfolder inside a jar file.
source.jar is jar file. Directory structure after unjarring is like this:
so if i want to get only subfolder 'com' can i do that
