.jar files are compressed programs written in Java language.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JAR_(file_format)

Since it's written in Java language, you need to install Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on your system to run Java applications and applets.
You can get it from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/j.../index.htm

Download, install JRE software and then run the .jar program.
