Is there any software that can do what 7-zip for Windows does. The functionality I need is adding, editing and deleting of files without expanding the archive. Also it has to work with Java archives like jars and wars.
In windows to edit a file in side the archive open the archive in 7zip and right click and click 'Edit' which will open the file in default application (in my case notepad) edit the file and save on closing the application (i.e notepad) 7zip will ask for confirmation to save the file.
The following are the screenshots of the steps.
