Jar files

Last night and this morning i spent all day (total of about 5 to 6 hours) searching through the forums on how to get bit torrent to work. My first attempt was with bitTornado. Attempting to get wxpython and python to work together was unsuccessful.

So i decided to get a java version of torrent and tried Azuerus. I managed to extract the .bin file now i'm trying to extract the .jar file. Going through the forums and spending a few more hours trying to figure out how to install Java (version j2re-1_4_2_05-linux-i586) i managed to do so. Now when i try to extract/run the jar file i get the following response:

**************************************************************************************************** *
[mike@Mike Downloads]$ java -jar Azureus2.1.0.4.jar

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/eclipse/swt/widgets/Display
at org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.mainwindow.SWTThread.<init>(
at org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.mainwindow.SWTThread.createInstance(
at org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.mainwindow.Initializer.<init>(
at org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.Main.<init>(
at org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.Main.main(
**************************************************************************************************** *
I'm not really firmilar with Java but what is this message telling me and how do i fix it? If it is compiled, where would the file be located?

Sorry if there is a duplicate post, i wasn't sure on where to put it. Any help would be appreciated on trying to get torrent to work.

This means you can't run the jar-file directly, it is just a jarred archive that you have to extract to get the classes you need to run it.
To extract the contents of a jar file:
--> jar xf jar-file
