Users trying to convert Java archives (.jar) to Android packages (.apk) may encounter many obstacles with jar to apk conversion. This is typically the case when users try to convert older Java apps or games for their Android phones.

Should this conversion ever work, the Java app needs to be written with Android Java libraries in mind. Such .jar files can be then converted to .apk packages with tools like the online JAR/JAD to APK converter. Unfortunately, we do not know about any tool that would offer users tools to convert jar to apk offline.

Older Java apps would need to be manually rewritten by a programmer so they use Android Java libraries instead the generic Java ones. This is needed because Java for Android is somewhat limited and does not support all the stuff from desktop platforms.

The table with program actions contains information about what each program is capable of doing with their files. This may be a good pointer for further searches for certain file conversions and help you find the converter you are looking for if our search result is insufficient for you. However, it is far from perfect and may sometimes show results which are not really usable because of the nature of the software handles the files. So a conversion that appears as possible, just because of matched actions, may in fact not be possible.
