JFind by Tom Ball

During my younger days, I remember visiting:

http://weblogs.java.net/blog/2005/09/03/jfind-simple-jar-file-locator

This became one of my most valuable tool in my Java programming life. The tool basically finds the Jar file(s) which has the searched class in it. The tool is executable from command-line.

The trouble with the tool was unavailability of it in binary-executable form. So I had copy of this tool in my cloud drives so that I can fetch from any machine any time.

Recently I was in need of this tool, again. I thought: would it not be good if I am able to build the tool and give an executable version of it, for all to download? So it is here:
