I believe the tutorials answer most of these questions: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/deployment/jar/signindex.html

Are you saying that the tutorial told you absolutely nothing about any of your questions? Nothing at all? Since the tutorial is all about jar signing, I find that hard to believe. So you could you sharpen your questions a bit based on what you read there? (For example it seems to me that question 2 is redundant given that you have asked question 1.)

Any Open Source Tool is available to do the operations - signing, key etc., via java open source instead of command prompt

The command line tools *are* open source if you have OpenJDK.
