If you don't open up the JAR file with a Java-based tool - you can't have Java executing.

And even if you DO use Java to open up the JAR, nothing "auto-executes" - you'd have to manually kick it off.

SO even if someone were to put Java bytecodes into a GIMP image file, it would never get executed...
