is it possible to convert a jar file to an epub file? if so, how?
if not, how do you read a jar file? i am not familiar with this type of file.
A jar is not a document or ebook. Its a Java ARchive (essentially its a zipfile with a different extension).
You could try unzipping the jar (with winzip) and see whats inside it. Alternatively rename it from .jar to .zip and Windows should let you extract the contents.
Then you can see if theres any documents inside the archive, which can be converted to epub.
Id recommend Calibre for all conversions, but not all documents convert to epub well
