How to run JAR file on Linux

JAR files are those that have been coded and compiled using the Java programming language. In order to run these files on a Linux system, the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) software must be installed first. This is just a software package that allows the system to understand JAR files, and therefore gives it the ability to open and run them. Usually, the JRE package is not installed on most Linux distros by default, so we must first install Java, and then we can open the JAR file(s).
