C++ was written by Bjarne Stroustrup between 1983 and 1985. I have his book
'The C++ Programming Language' on my desk.

Depends on what you mean by "the jdk". Most of the java libraries are written in Java, obviously, with some hooks to the operating system written in C, as far as I know (methods that are declared as "native" in the Java source code).

The Sun Java compiler is written in Java itself (the first weren't, though). IBM's jikes is written in C/C++, as far as I know.

The JVM obviously can't be written in Java. I'd again bet on C/C++.

Microsoft did not make C++, they made a popular IDE for it called Visual Studio. The JDK has nothing to do with Microsoft. The JDK is made by Sun Microsystems.

That's not only rude , but also ineffective. You actually were lucky, because I nearly was repelled by the silly subject line and just looked into it and answered because I was bored at that time. On a normal day, I probably would have stopped bothering once I noticed the incoherence of your post.
