Find a class somewhere inside dozens of JAR files?

Tags: , , , ,

How would you find a particular class name inside lots of jar files?

(Looking for the actual class name, not the classes that reference it.)


Eclipse can do it, just create a (temporary) project and put your libraries on the projects classpath. Then you can easily find the classes.

Another tool, that comes to my mind, is Java Decompiler. It can open a lot of jars at once and helps to find classes as well.
