"jar -tvf" Command Is Issuing Improper Information
Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016
Applies to:Java Platform, Standard Edition - Version 6 to 7 [Release 6 to 7]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The issue reported was that running 'jar -tvf' on a given jar shows the entry for certain members more than once i.e. duplicate entries.
This happened with random jar files belonging to different teams (e.g. WebLogic, Fusion BI). The only difference seen was the timestamp of the files.
After a lot of different theories and internal discussions, it was determined that the issue was with ant jarring.
