You nearly always run into an issue of searching for a resource that is inside a zip. Worse, that resource is inside a zip which is itself inside ANOTHER zip. This is pretty common for the Java developer who keeps messing around with jar, war and ear archives.
Possibly you need to verify whether a particular resource is present in an ear or you know part of a class file name but dont know which ear on your hard disk contains that class file. ZFind helps you here.
Every java developer would have written this utility atleast once. Save your effort and time and simply use this. If zfind doesnt fit your needs, submit a feature request.
ZFind will support tar, gz and bzip archives in future releases, so come back later if you dont find what you need now!
At the moment the homepage is at http://zfind.javaforge.com/ which has the manual and binaries. Transitioning will take a wee bit of time.
