I'm fairly new to Java and am currently working on my first project. I wanted to include a simple directory viewer with a preview but was unable to create one myself and stumbled upon Tom Schindl's Blog (unable to link because of new user restrictions) where he showed how to create a directory viewer with e(fx)clipse.

I managed to make it work but would like to make some changes (supporting TIF image previews) and add some stuff to the description of the file preview.

I'd need to edit the DirectoryViewSkin.class inside the org.eclipse.fx.ui.controls.jar but can't figure out how to build the jar file after making the changes.

I've tried to edit the jar directly and building the jar from the project of the git repository but couldn't manage to make either work.

Is it not allowed/possible to edit the jar or am I simply missing something?

Well our repo is at - we currently develop in the 3.x. Do you want develop an Eclipse plugin or use the stuff in a plain JavaFX application? In the latter case I would suggest you take a experimental master branch because there stuff is built on pure maven so it is easier for you to consume and deliver a custom version.
