Hi Friend,

Try the following code:

import java.util.jar.*;

public class CreateJar {
public static int buffer = 10240;
protected void createJarArchive(File jarFile, File[] listFiles) {
try {
byte b[] = new byte[buffer];
FileOutputStream fout = new FileOutputStream(jarFile);
JarOutputStream out = new JarOutputStream(fout, new Manifest());
for (int i = 0; i < listFiles.length; i++) {
if (listFiles[i] == null || !listFiles[i].exists()|| listFiles[i].isDirectory())
System.out.println("Adding " + listFiles[i].getName());
JarEntry addFiles = new JarEntry(listFiles[i].getName());

FileInputStream fin = new FileInputStream(listFiles[i]);
while (true) {
int len =, 0, b.length);
if (len <= 0)
out.write(b, 0, len);
System.out.println("Jar File is created successfully.");
} catch (Exception ex) {}
public static void main(String[]args){
CreateJar jar=new CreateJar();
File folder = new File("c://Answers//Database";);
File[] files = folder.listFiles();
File file=new File("C://Answers//DataBase//DataBaseExamples.jar";);
jar.createJarArchive(file, files);
