Is it a "bytecode" file, made of binary digits?

Is it a "bytecode" file (.class / java) written just with binary digits?

Yes, it's equivalent to what you have in an .exe file.

Short answer: Yes, like everything else on your computer is. Long answer: Technically, compiled programs aren't even supposed to be read by humans. If you look at one in Notepad or something similar, you'll see a cacophony of random symbols, whitespace, and system state checks that can't even be displayed normally. This is because the .class file is actually full of machine instructions (for the JVM), and all that text is how text editors represent the bytes that make up the file.
