Jarfinder provides a huge searchable database of classes and jars from a wide variety of java projects. This makes it easy to resolve ClassNotFoundExceptions or NoClassDefFoundErrors
Class search allows searching by full or partial class name. A list of matching classes names will be returned - clicking on a class name will return details of the known versions of this class and details of which jars provide them. e.g.
Class search supports the the wildcard character '*'. For example the
would return all classes name Foo within any package beginning with com.
If a wildcard is not included within the search terms one will be automatically
appended and prepended to the query. For example the search :
foo.bar will be interpretted as
This behaviour can be overridden by prepending '=' to your search i.e
=foo.bar will search only for classes named foo within package bar.
Jar search allows searching by full or partial jar name.
If a '#' character is used to start the search term e.g
then the jars will be searched by their md5sum hash.
