New to JCE. I now it is for encrypt/decrpt. Just curious -- It comes with jdk1.4, right ? So if I have two parties on 2 different JVMs, do they need to install anything besides the jdk ? For example, do they need to have any keystore installed ? where to get keystore ?

You don't necessarily need a keystore, although both sides will need to know the passwords used by the other side. A simple example of encryption and decryption with JCE is shown here.
I agree. Here's the link:
