jar command not running in Unix

Hi ,
I am working in Sun SOlaris 9 and trying to extract a particular jar file in my home.
I am giving command

"jar xv <filename>"

But it just hangs and does nothing ?

Any pointers why this is happenning ? or how can I see contents of a jar file?

Thanks

It's "jar xf", not "jar xv".

To view the content, use "jar tf".

But I am unable to understand why xv didnt work? as I understand v is for verbose
mode ??!!

Thanks
