This is one of the most common file compression formats. It was created by Russian programmer Evgeny Roshal. The format allows one to break up an archived file into several parts, to block an archive to prevent accidental modification, and to enhance data recovery (helps to renew a damaged archive). It has a 128-bit AES algorithm.
This format is a Java archive and is presented as a typical ZIP file, in which part of the program is written in Java language. It was gradually replaced by new mobile platforms, since JAR is used for launching applications and games on early generation mobile phones. They can contain a digital signature, and they’re actively used in popular browsers for storing supplements.
