getting .bin file to work

I downloaded a Java plugin which has a .bin extension. I haven't worked with this extension so far. How do I go about installing it so that I get a '.so' file in the plugins directory of my browser.

maybe you should use the command like this:
chmod +x ***.bin

Didn't work! All that does is make the binary file executable and that really doesn't help as a binary file cannot be executed. Here is the error:
bash: ./d602y3g2.bin: cannot execute binary file

in your terminal goto the directory and type in ./file or "sh file"
then you'll have to read the agreement just press any key to continue and type in yes to extract the files. Iono what to do after.. im stuck myself.

What does it mean?
