How To do update/edit on selenium script got in JAR file format from other location

  • I have a Runnable JAR file of selenium script forwarded from other location, now I want to use that same script for my project with some minor updates. How to do that? Can we open that in Eclipse and do updates/Edits on JAR File script?

  • Jar file contains java classes - the files which are converted from the source code to the bytecode. You cannot easily change that. There is a way to decompile classes to the source. However:

    • That might not help you even if you're a skilled developer if a bytecode was handled by an obfuscator.
    • Decompilation requires quite a big degree of understanding of what is happening and why. If you are ready to dive deep into that, check this SO post.
