Hi Cindy, Here's the stuff JVM A software "execution engine" that safely and compatibly executes the byte codes in Java class files on a microprocessor (whether in a computer or in another electronic device). JRE A subset of the Java Developer Kit for end-users and developers who want to redistribute the runtime environment. The Java runtime environment consists of the JVM, the Java core classes, and supporting files. The java docs. has a very decent glossary - good for students ( I make mine check stuff BEFORE they ask ), and for other folks too http://java.sun.com/docs/glossary.nonjava.html regards, Jyotsna P.S. I wish more people would use search engines etc. They could figure out a lot of things themselves. Cindy - now let's hope he/she at checks this board

Nicely said java.exe is a JVM. Browsers have a JVM built into them. When you download the JRE from SUN you get the java.exe JVM with the deal as well as all the classes for the version of java that it reflects. Everything that a person would need to execute an application, but minus the documentation and the compiling tools etc.
