CLA file extension - Java Class file

What is cla file? How to open cla files?

The cla file extension is associated with Java. A .cla file represents shortcut for CLASS format.

In the Java programming language, source files (.java files) are compiled into (virtual) machine-readable class files which have a .class extension. Since Java is a platform-independent language, source code is compiled into an output file known as bytecode, which it stores in a .class file. If a source file has more than one class, each class is compiled into a separate .class file. These .class files can be loaded by any Java Virtual Machine (JVM).
