It usually contains certificate information such as subject name, public key info and signature info.

  Run executable jar on double click on Windows

Normally after installing Java, there will be an association between .jar and the javaw.exe. This enables the executable jar to be opened on double click. You can check the association by going to Control Panel -> Programs -> Default Programs -> Associate a file type or protocol with a program.

But since String comparison is so frequently needed, Java has worked on the String class to make == workable when comparing two String literals. The String class maintains a pool of emp...
