So I have a main inside one of my java classes. It is packaged in a jar(test.jar) and that jar is placed in an ear(test.ear). The ear is deployed to the server.

Now I want to run that classes main by using the ear in my classpath. I know that if I just used the jar I could get to that class but the jar is in the ear already and I don't really want to put the jar in two places.



java -cp $JBOSS_HOME/server/all/farm/test.ear com.test.SomeTest

When I do this I get the dreaded class not found error.

Anyone have a good way to say "come on java just look at all the .jar(s) in the ear archive to find that class.

Unless this is a new feature just added to Java, you can't do it. You have to extract the files in the EAR file, so that you can have access to the JAR files...
