    JDK = Java Development Kit, its what you need if you intend to write and compile programs using Java.

    JRE= Java Runtime Edition, this is what everyone needs in order to run a Java program.

    JVM = Java Virtual Machine, it comes with the JRE and is used to run the programs. Whenever you run a Java program the JVM starts up and interprets the byte code which was created as you compiled your program. You can read more about the JVM at Java Virtual Machine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
