Try this:


JNI also may be helpfull, see RarExt.dll, but it is not so easy.

The problem is that, unlike the ZIP or GZIP compression techniques, RAR is a closed format. Therefore, its complete details are not disclosed.

You could try to find a third party library, but there probably will be few.

Java Unrar is quite useful, but still needs "unrar.exe" to run...
