I have a jar file that includes a properties file that I want to change.
How can I change properites file and then include back in the jar file?

1. Extract all of the files from the jar.

2. Change the properties file.

3. Put all of the files back into a new version of the jar.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
