jar command not found


Hello there,
My question is simple: how to solve "jar command not found"?
I installed Mageia3 from DVD and upgraded to Mageia4. Succes confirmed after installation.

For the TWS platform from interactive brokers I need to install 'unixmacosx.jar'
To have the jar command available I unistalled icedtes-web contole pannel and installed the latest java rpm. I managed the plugin 'libnpjp2.so' into the plugin folder of firefox-24.4.0
and still the jar command is not available.
What did I wrong?
Please advise

Hi,

.jar files are just zip archives. You can unpack them with the unzip command. Try the following:
Code:
unzip unixmacosx.jar

Unless it's supposed to be executable in which case first make it executable

Code:
chmod 755 /path/to/.jar
To run it is no jar but start with java...

Code:
java -jar /path/to/.jar

Hi Evo2
Thanks. It worked fine. TWS login is an absolute must to me.
