JAR
Last modified: Tuesday, March 12, 2002 

Short for Java Archive, a file format used to bundle all components required by a Java applet. JAR files simplify the downloading of applets since all the components (.class files, images, sounds, etc.) can be packaged into a single file. In addition, JAR supports data compression, which further decreases download times.

By convention, JAR files end with a .jar extension.
