Question about Computers & Internet

I'm trying to figure out how to get my Captivate to run .jar and .tar files. Someone suggested Astgro File Manager and I tried that but it still didn't work. Is there any way to get these files to run - even if they have to be converted to another format? Please don't get too technical - I know just enough to really screw something up. :)

The '.jar' files are used when you run JAVA (it is a programming language) programs on your PC -- you should never need to "open" such files. Compare it to not understanding how the engine in your automobile works, but still being able to drive your car without touching the engine. There should be a "main" Java program, that quietly accesses the '.jar' files, when needed, that you should be running.

Similarly, the '.tar' files (which are commonly-used on UNIX/LINUX systems) can be compared to using a "briefcase" to hold all your papers & books -- you easily carry just one briefcase, rather than holding individual folders & sheets of paper.

I have installed multiple jar or jad files in my phone and it was directed on a memory card how will i go in installing the file?


You mean to say that you have downloaded those jar and jad files on your phone.
Well, to install them please locate those files with the help of the file manager and click on them one by one. The file will run and install only if your phone supports them. Even if your phone supports jar files does not mean that your phone will accept them. It is jar files written for your phone model that will be accepted. And the best method to find out now is to try and install them. If not installed then you can delete them from the phones memory.
To get files written for your phone model is to access the site with SW for phones and download only after specifying the phone make and model.

How to get installed themes and softwares which are in .jar and .jad formats?? after i copied the .jar and .jad files from computer to my G600 mobile i didnt get any option to install it. Please help


U must use the file manager on your phone and reach these files. I doubt id .jad would work, but, .jar would work alright. In your file manager select this file and install it. Alternatively, access www.getjar.com and download the .jar file to your phone. The option will be "download and install the file". A much easier option. And faster too.

How can i install .nes or .jar files in kisen n82+ . i had tried pc sync manager but no luck. also tried to copy all .nes to mythroad folder & also tried to copy under games folder still same result ....


Well, as for.jar files, I usually drag and drop to a java folder in the memory card. Then go to the file manager (memory card) search for the file that I just saved in the java folder and open it, it will prompt you to install, let it install. If it does not prompt you to open the file after installation, then just go to Java in the phone's memory and click on it, it should show the games already installed.

How can I create .jar file using jarmaker s/w.... (shahsani@ymail.com)


hi

Question How do I create a .JAR file?
Answer Java Archive (JAR) files allow developers to package many classes into a single file. JAR files also use compression, so this can make applets and applications smaller.
Creating a .JAR file is easy. Simple go to the directory your classes are stored in and type :-
jar -cf myfile.jar *.class If your application or applet uses packages, then you'll need to do things a little differently. Suppose your classes were in the package mycode.games.CoolGame - you'd change to the directory above mycode and type the following :- (Remember to use / on UNIX systems)
jar -cf myfile.jar .\mycode\games\CoolGame\*.class Now, if you have an existing JAR file, and want to extract it, you'd type the following
jar -xf myfile.jar Working with JAR files isn't that difficult, especially if you've used the unix 'tar' command before. If you're planning on packaging an applet for Internet Explorer, or an application for Microsoft's jview, you might also want to consider .CAB files.
'); document.write (''); document.write ('showle?'); //-->
hop i was helpfull good luck
