Program 1:




//Java program demonstrating JarEntry method
import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.PrintStream;
import java.util.jar.JarEntry;
import java.util.jar.JarInputStream;
class JarEntryDemo
{
    public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException 
    {
        FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream("codechecker.jar");
        JarInputStream jis = new JarInputStream(fis);
        JarEntry je=jis.getNextJarEntry();
  
        PrintStream out = System.out;
  
        //illustrating getAttributes
        out.println(je.getAttributes());
  
        //illustrating getCodeSigner
        out.println(je.getCodeSigners());
  
        //illustrating getCertificates
        out.println(je.getCertificates());
    }
}
