What is the file extension for bots in Automation Anywhere A360 version? Some sources suggest it is .jar, while others claim it should be in JSON format. I personally believe that the packages are in .jar format and bot files are in JSON format. Can someone please clarify this doubt?

Hi @RajeshS106234 ,


For A360 files are .JAR format and included with manifest.json file.


JAR stands for Java ARchive. It's a file format based on the popular ZIP file format and is used for aggregating many files into one. Although JAR can be used as a general archiving tool, the primary motivation for its development was so that Java applets and their requisite components.
