class file icon:
The class file extension is commonly used for Java Classes. In the Java programming language, source files (.java files) are compiled into (virtual) machine-readable *.class files.
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, which can be loaded by any Java Virtual Machine (JVM).
The default software associated to class file type:
Company or developer:
Java is a set of developing applications and specifications used to create software in Java programming language. Java is used on many computing platforms from desktop computers to mobile phones.

Company or developer:
JDK is a development environment for building applications, applets, and components using the Java programming language.
