Hi, Manish
java.exe runs Java classes in Windows operating system. I don't know what else you want to know... Please, explain question and maybe then I can answer to it correctly.

I'm not sure whether this question should stay in this forum, but I'm in a good mood today
Check out this link: http://java.sun.com/products/jdk/1.1/docs/tooldocs/win32/java.html

Yeah,
You are right Valentin, this should go to beginner/intermediate forum. In fact I thought I posted it there, but found it here. :roll: You can move it, your call!
Regarding the question, I mean, I know that java.exe is the Java Interpreter, and it is another process for windows OS, but there is sth more to it. I mean the DLLs that it will load to work with native OS, and other such internals. Is there a link that discusses such details?

You can look at the source for it. I think its launcher\java.c in the src.zip
