    Find Jar files of any Java class file – FindJar.com

    Find Jar Files by typing the class name

    Find Jar Files by typing the class name

    Last week during my daily work at job, I faced a problem. The problem was I was getting compilation error in Java project in Eclipse IDE.

    The error was “Cannot find Classname”. I didn’t encounter the “Cannot find Classname” error in my whole Java Experience. I wanted to find the Jar file which contains this Class so that I can move forward.

    I then started searching for solutions in Google Search Engine. I was lucky that I found findJar.com

    How to Find Jar files of any Java class file ?

    findJAR.com is a free web service which is a JAR search engine that helps to find JAR files containing required Java classes.

    – Simply enter the name of the class or the JAR file you are looking for and start your search.
    – findJAR.com can be used to easily resolve NoClassDefFoundError and ClassNotFoundException problems.
    – findJar.com claims that their database holds more than 2,260,000 classes in 17.600 JAR files.

    If you find a class or JAR file that is not there in their database, you can contact them and request them to add it in their database.

    Hope this post helped to all Java Developers!
