JAR is a file format based on the popular ZIP file format and is used for aggregating many files into one. A JAR file is essentially a ZIP file that contains an META-INF directory and some JAR-specified files in it. JAR Test Suite can be used to test robustness, security and reliability of JAR implementations.
