    Currently a Snow Leopard User (10.6.8)
    Very frequently I use a JAVA (Not JavaScript) program (it's a .JAR file)
    Just as Snow Leopard came preloaded with the ability to read Adobe .pdf's, it also came preloaded for opening JAVA programs.

    Will my JAVA program still work under Yosemite if I decide to upgrade (without having to take action on my part) ?

    I can see no reason why it shouldn't. I run plenty of .JARs under Yosemite. Essentially you should be able to use .JARs on any machine with Java installed (although there's a reason a lot of devs coined the term "Write once, debug everywhere" to describe coding in Java, but if you've already used it in OS X, it should work in a newer version of OS X).
