Information about JAR and ZIP file formats

Full name JAR, Java Archive File ZIP - ZIP Archive
File extension .jar .zip, .zipx
MIME type application/zip
Developed by Netscape, Sun Microsystems, Oracle Corporation Phil Katz, PKWARE, Inc.
Type of format Archive Data compression
Description JAR is a framework used to group different classes of java files (programs and software) and other resources and data related to it (images, texts, etc). Thus, their further easy distribution across the java platform has been simplified and became more user-friendly. With JRE installed on computers and mobile phones, it can run independently and serve as a program library. For example, mobile games use them to store game data, and Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird, and other products store themes and add-ons. ZIP is an archive file format that supports lossless data compression. A .zip file may contain one or more files or directories that may have been compressed. The .zip file format permits many compression algorithms, though DEFLATE is the most common.
Technical details The JAR files can be retrieved or developed from scratch using JDK's jar command and tools. An option to digitally sign those archives using the jar sign tools is also available. These files serve an extensive purpose, for they also support optional manifest files, CLASS files, and application resources. ZIP files are archives that store multiple files.ZIP allows contained files to be compressed using many different methods and simply storing a file without compressing it. Instead, each file is stored separately, allowing different files in the same archive to be compressed using different methods.
