I want to use jython to interactively test some Java work I did.
Unfortunately for this situation, jython caches all jar information
and skips any jar that is corrupt. My Java work consists of storing
some information (license key) in a jar in the CLASSPATH. Of course,
doing this (in the only way I could come up with) causes that
particular file to be "corrupt" because it no longer matches the CRC
checksum or the compression algorithm. This is acceptable because
this file is never loaded by the JVM, but read directly by my code.
When I want to test it with Jython, jython doesn't load the jar
because it is "bad". As a result I don't get any of the classes that
are defined in the jar.
Is there a way to turn off jython's processing and caching of the
jar's information so I can use this modified (err, hacked <wink>) jar?
If not, I can write some Java code to run through some tests.
