The questions you have asked relate to the role and very essence of the language. The Java Development Kit
(JDK) allows programmers to compile Java source code
(.java files) into byte code
(.class files) that can be executed by the Java Virtual Machine
Google the colored terms if they are unfamiliar. Flexibility is great but self learning is even more important.
