Where can I find Jar Bundler?
So I am trying to compile a little java program into a .app, but I cannot find the Jar Bundler application. On the Apple support page it says that it is installed with XCode, but I cannot find it in the specified location or by doing a system search. Does anyone know how/where I can get it?

I did a search in Spotlight and it came up in /usr/share/java/Tools. Did you check there?

It's not there. The only thing that is, is Java VisualVM.
Also, I hava Xcode version 3.2.6 and Mac OS 10.6.8, if that makes any difference

It might (I'm running Xcode 4 on Lion). Have you tried searching for it with Spotlight? As I noted, I did and I had a result right away.

I have tried searching on spotlight and finder, but I can't find it.

The only other source I could find was /Developer/Applications/Utilities. See page 6 of the Jar Bundler guide for more (here).

If it's not there, we can do a search. Execute the following from the command line:

sudo find / -name Jar\
If that doesn't find it, then you don't have it. Try reinstalling Xcode if this is the case.

Still didn't find it :( Oh well, I'll just reinstall XCode. Thank you for your help.

Ugh, I just finished a reinstall and I still can't find it! The only thing I found this time was a broken alias in /Developer/Applications/Utilities/Tools
