File Extension JHTML

The file extension JHTML is defined as a Java HTML web pages file and is associated with ATG Dynamo. Dynamo is a web server application produced by the Art Technology Group. Dynamo is Java-based and provides a set of tools that allow you to create dynamic applications for the web.

The file extension JHTML is a web file type that contains Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) files and tag files that reference objects created with Java which run on a specific server configuration. JHTML is a scripting technique developed by the Art Technology group and allows programmers and developers to add dynamic tags to HTML files. The purpose of the tags is to make web pages interactive through the use of Java.

Since the inception of JHTML, the Art Technology Group started using JSP (Java Server Pages) with the Dynamo program. For this reason, the JHTML format is somewhat rare but still used with websites that operate on lighter programming and coding methods.

How to Open JHTML Files

Since JHTML files are a web-based application, you can open the files using any web browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, Opera, or other type of web browser. The web browsers can be used with any operating system, including Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

You can also open JHTML files on multiple platforms using the Java application. Java is available as a free download on the Oracle website and is an application that allows you to interact with dynamic web content included in most of today’s websites.

If you want to open and work with JHTML files, you can use the Dynamo application by the Art Technology Group. The Dynamo application has since become a part of the ATG Commerce program which was acquired by Oracle a few years ago. The ATG Commerce software application is available on the Oracle website and is compatible with the Linux operating system.

JHTML files contain source code and scripts, which means you can open and view the contents of the file using any text editing program. If you use Windows, you can open JHTML files with WordPad, Notepad, Helios TextPad, Open Office Writer, WordPerfect, or Microsoft Word. For Mac OS X, you can open JHTML files using Apple TextEdit, BBEdit, TextMate, Apple Pages, or MacVim. If you use the Linux operating system, you can open and view the contents of a JHTML file using AbiWord, EditPlus, gEdit, Nano Editor, PSPad, Leafpad, KWrite or Vim.
