Hello all and I just wanted to thank you in advance for the help. I just started learning java and I am new to this forum as well.

I am currently reading HeadFirst Java and I am a bit confused how to execute/view the sourcecode in the codekitchenstiger.jar file posted on head First's main website. When I double click on it, it says "Failed to load Main-Class manifest attribute". I am executing the file wrong? thank you

I am not sure about the CodeKitchenTiger, but if you are looking for the source code files and examples, those can be found on the website at HeadFirstJava. You can download by the chapter.

Agree with Larry Frissell. You are better off unzipping the code samples, finding the .java files, and copying the text by hand; that way you will really know what it says and will see what happens if you make a mistake. You learn more that way, and you can see what happens if you change them.
Then compile and run them in the usual fashion.

I downloaded the zip file containing the text to all the codes in the book; however, I still want to know how to open this jar file. It's really bugging me, I have tried youtube to see if anybody had posted a vid on how to open these files but, "no luck". How can I open the jar file? Thanks.

Also, Where can I find the answers to the "Exercises" I'm on "BE the compiler" right now and I want to check if my answers are correct. Thanks.

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
