    That is a Windows-based file type. It doesn't run on a Mac.

    One other possibility is that it is a Web-based Java program run by a Web server. Still, it wouldn't be something you would run on your Mac.

    Where did you get the file and how do you know you need it, if you don't know what it is?

    Not sure what type of file it is but you can try right clicking on the file, choose open with and see if the OS offers any programs on your computer to open it.
