    Description

      The `jar` tool lacks the ability to extract the contents of a JAR file to a directory. Tools such as `unzip` allow for usages such as `unzip foo.zip -d classes` to extract the contents to a directory (creating it if needed).

      JDK-6350735 is an older issue in the same area except that it proposed using -C which is the option when creating JAR files.
