Its the java activation framework, homepage
It is used to handle mime types in email, and with things like JAX-RPC, the SOAP API in java, and I think it has a lot to do with drag and drop in java too.
Its an add on for Java1.1,1.2 and 1.3, but I think it is built into to Java1.4.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
