    Default Search class file for particular code

    Hi All,

    I want to search a particular text in set of class files unjarred from different jars. Can anyone suggest if there is any such kind of tool? I need something likes windows search where in I place all class files which I want to search in a folder and then I give the text to be searched. Please do let me know if anything like this exists.

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't know any tool for such kind of work to search class in jar but you can write the code to search class in jar file. For that you can take advantage of reflection.
