I have a question about reading class files from war file. My situation is - I am starting a java process in a shell script (in UNIX).
This process starts a thread that reads messages from MQ, so to process the MQ messages, I need a number of class files that i already have
in a war file. But for some reason, my process is not reading from war file. Instead if i physically paste all the class files in a directory, it is working.

So how to read class files from a war file.I have the path of the war file in the classpath, but still it is unable to read.

Hope Iam clear.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
