    Please give your threads meaningful/useful titles. This one might be "What is the JVM?"

    I suggest you do an Internet search, read what you find there, and then return with any questions you still have.

    JVM interprets compiled Java binary code for a computer's processor (or "hardware platform") so that it can perform a Java program's instructions. Java was designed to allow application programs to be built that could be run on any platform without having to be rewritten or recompiled by the programmer for each separate platform. JVM makes this possible because it is aware of the specific instruction lengths and other particularities of the platform.

    Answers to these recent questions you've asked can be found by searching the Internet, reading Wikipedia articles, etc. Most here will resist doing that for you, especially since these sound a bit like homework/quiz questions, so I'm closing these threads.

    PM me if you'd like to offer additional details or reasons for why you ask these questions.
