Install an application on a Solaris Box

I have a vab_4.0_sp1_win32. exe file and cdvab_4.0_unix.jar file. I installed the windows file on windows box.

I need to install the jar file on Solaris box.

I am new to Unix. How should I install the application in Unix.
Do we need to unzip the jar file.

I have to install at the root, after going to the root what are the steps involved to installed.

A jar file is a java -archive

It can simply e copied to your unix-box and started using the java-command

java -jar cdvab_4.0_unix.jar
It will execute a program encapsulated in a JAR archive.

jar xf cdvab_4.0_unix.jar
to un-archive/extract the files in Archive file.
one thing what u can do is unjar that file
using the foloowing command

jar xvf  cdvab_4.0_unix.jar

after that u will be left with unjared file in that directory
