We are given a fully-quali ed class name that contains amainmethod for launching an application,in addition to a directory containing all the source les and a list of Jar les used in the larger project. We seekto nd, isolate and minimize a set of Java source and Jar les that are necessary and sufficient for compilation,execution and dissemination of a Java system.
