Manifest file would be difficult. Accessing the manifest is easy if your code is the code
that is
creating class loaders for JARs. Inside a J2EE app server, the classpath is provided for you
acompli and is opaque ... without a lot of dangerous down-casts, it is very difficult to work
backwards from the classpath to the jars that make up the classpath.
