JAR files with Alpha ZIP
is a JAR file? JAR is short for Java Archive, and is a file format
that contains all the components needed to execute a Java application
or a Java applet. JAR files make it easier to download applets,
since they make it possible to include all the information in
one single file. Another benefit of using compressed JAR files
is that download times are much smaller.

files, as well as a number of other compressed formats. Thanks
