Does anybody have implemented this functionality ?
I am interested in any kind of help (algorithm, source code etc...) to achieve the verify function.

    You can use Class java.util.jar.JarFile. First instantiate it with file name and a boolean set to true shows that it must verify the signature. Now you must read every jarEntry contains in jar file. It throws a securityException when signature fails.
    I have also written a code that in addition to above do a verification on the certificate contains in the jar file.
