Java is platform independent this means your Java program runs just as well on a PC running Windows 95/98/NT/2000 as it will on Sun Solaris or Linux. This is possible because a java program does not execute directly on your computer. It runs on a standardized hypothetical machine called JVM, which itself runs on that particular operating system. so JVM has to be different for different platform.
Hope it will help
