What are CLASS files and how to open them
Are you having problems opening a CLASS file or are you simply curious about its contents? We're here to explain the properties of these files and provide you with software that can open or handle your CLASS files.
What is a CLASS file?
A .CLASS file is a Java Bytecode file.
Files containing the .class file extension are primarily associated with files written in the Java programming language. These files are compiled bytecode class applications.
They are created by compiling different Java source code files. The Java source code files are compiled to create the resulting CLASS file, which is then loaded into the Java Virtual Machine. At that point, the Java Virtual Machine executes the application.
It is important to note that because there are different versions of the Java Virtual Machine, not all CLASS files will be compatible with each version.
