jHades is a tool for troubleshooting Java classpath problems. It allows to get classpath information that is not readily available, including in environments where the developer as limited control (to turn on verbose:class at the class level, search server directories, etc.).

JHades allows to query the classpath for jars, class folders, class files or other resources. A standalone version exists for analysis at the WAR level.

JHades depends only on the Java 7 runtime, no other libraries are required. It uses the Java 7 NIO library that allows to easily inspect the classpath directories and jar files.

By using only classes of the JDK, we are sure that jHades will not create it’s own classpath problems by bringing along other libraries.
