When I write a java class and put its class file in a server then the server loeads it and executes it.

But when I write a simple java class which has a public static void main method...and when I run it from the comand prompt by typing java HelloWorld how does its gets a JVM?

Somewhere there's a PATH statement that lists the path to the java.exe binary executable. The classpath I believe always includes the current working directory, designated by a period in the CLASSPATH statement...
