File Extension jad Details and Technical Info

JAD file extension is used by Java Application Descriptor files. These files contain metadata about java mobile edition applications (MIDlets) that can be downloaded from the Internet.

  • MIDlet-1 - contains information about application name, icon and startup class
  • MIDlet-Jar-Size - number of bytes in the application JAR file
  • MIDlet-Jar-URL - Internet address where application archive can be downloaded
  • MIDlet-Name - redundant tag used to store application name only
  • MIDlet-Vendor - information about the company that authored the MIDlet
  • MIDlet-Version - application version number
  • MicroEdition-Configuration - information about CLDC version required to run particular MIDlet
