If you create a jar index file that contains classes loaded
through reflection, you will get InvalidJarIndexException errors.

Here is a test case and reproducible steps using JDK 1.3.0-C build.
The jar works fine with JRE 1.2.2.
With JRE 1.3, you will get the following errors:

Class B
Exception in thread "main" sun.misc.InvalidJarIndexException: Invalid index!

The platform is Windows NT 4.0, sp6
	java version "1.3.0"
	java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.0-C)
	Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.0-C, mixed mode)

Steps to reproduce:
set classpath=.;b.jar
javac -d . B.java

del b.jar
jar cfm b.jar manifest.mf -C . c\B.class
jar -i b.jar
del c\B.class

javac A.java

java A

public class A
    public static void main( String args[] )
        A a = new A();

    public A()
        new c.B();

package c;

import java.io.*;

public class B
    public B()
        System.out.println( "Class B" );
        InputStream stream = (InputStream)java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged
         (new java.security.PrivilegedAction() {
          public Object run() {
         /* ****************************************************************/
                    // The following line is the one that causes the problem.
              return ClassLoader.getSystemResourceAsStream( "c/b.properties" );
        System.out.println( "stream = " + stream );
