find-jar man page

find-jar — find extension JAR or directory


find-jar JAR|artifact-coordinates


The find-jar command tests the resolution of a given element. If successful it will return a JAR file or a directory.

This command is solely intended for testing resolution and should not be used in scripts. Even for single-element classpath building build-classpath is preferred since single-element searches can produce multiple file results when resolving into a directory.


Using find-jar with artifact-coordinates requires xmvn-resolve command to be available. User of find-jar is responsible for making it available in the system.


find-jar xpp3 will print /usr/share/java/xpp3.jar on standard output.

find-jar javamail will print /usr/share/java/javamail on standard output.
