Answer: A .jar file is similar to a .zip, .rar, .cab file in that it compressed and or holds many files in one folder. If you really want to can rename the .jar file a .zip file and open it with winzip.

If you are in school however it sounds like you are taking a java programming class. That is a package, and you may be able to open it with the Java Developers Kit, im not sure, i took a Java class in College, but that was 6 years ago.

If this doesnt help let us know, and well do some more research.

Before you try anything you should think about doing a free scan for .jar related registry errors. This will ensure your computer is ready to precede.
