    way to run java program without installing jdk
    The JRE should be all that is needed to execute a normal java program.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    I want to run my code . . .
    In what form is the code? Has it been compiled into .class files?

    .class files can be taken to and run on any system on which the JRE has been installed, providing the JRE isn't so old that the .class files aren't compatible. You can copy them directly or package them into a runnable .jar file. I've had good luck exporting runnable .jar files from Eclipse, but others recommend building .jar files outside the IDE, which is relatively simple. Refer to the Eclipse Wiki/tutorials and the Java tutorials for help in these areas, if needed.
