i am glad, that my report is not gone in dust :)
*.java - should be of course opened with default editor
*.class - make sense open with java. I know that not every class have main
method, but some have. Unexperienced user should be able to run class file
either by clicking or form context menu "run with java". It is default behavior
in Mac OS X, and also in Windows (if you have java installed).

*.jar - make definitely sense. I am aware that jar is just another package
format. But AFAIK it is not widely used for packing. It is used mainly for
packing *.class files. I know that not all jars contain Mainfest, but it really
annoying when you try run program and you only get content of jar. So
unexperienced user should get runned program = default and experienced user
will unpack it using jar command, or use additional method "unpack using Ark ;)
Again open jar using java -jar is default choice in Mac OS X and Windows.

Imaging this situation for moment. User download installer of some program in
jar package and try install program? No, he will only unpack content of
installer package.

My point of view is that both users (unexperienced and experienced) should get
what they want and deserve :)
