Is the JVM different for different operating systems like is JVM for Windows NT different from the JVM for Novell.

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
