How to search *.xml files included in *.jar files ?

0 votes

I'd like to find files *.xml or *.class inside JAR files for a certain word.

I searched for the word in the JAR directory using Agent Ransack. But Agent Ransack could not find the word even though some XML files have the word indeed.

If I extract all the *.jar files, then Agent Ransack can find the word in the *.xml files.

Is this a limitation of Agent Ransck ?

JAR files are effectively ZIP files but Agent Ransack can't search ZIP files, only the PRO version FileLocator Pro can.

Using FileLocator Pro you can search JAR files by switching on the ZIP interpreter:

ZIP Searching

and then in the Main tab searching through the JAR file folder:
