Simple but powerful tool for finding java class files on the filesystem, recursively looking into directories and archives. Useful for fixing "class not found" errors and setting the CLASSPATH properly.
It works like a charm! One small problem is -- i cannot start it if working remotely (e.g. via SSH without X-forwarding). Wrapping "jGui = new JFindGUI();" inside a try-catch (or some smarted detection of headless jvm) and falling back to non-GUI version would probably help in such cases.
1.2 worked great after I made two changes to JFind.java. The biggest problem (which kept it from working at all) was removing the toLowerCase() in line 201 (maybe that worked in Windows - but not on my Mac). The second problem was some hidden files are being treated as a directory, throwing an null pointer exception. was fixed by changing line 97 from: for (int i = 0; i < contents.length; i++) to: for (int i = 0; contents != null && i < contents.length; i++) If anyone needs a binary just email me scott at mcintoshes dot com
