Hi,

I want to the basic difference between JRE & JVM. If the question seems to be funny or wrong, just explain what is JRE, JDK, JVM and how are they related.

If I am installing JDK, the JRE will automatically be installed or we have to install the JRE separately?

Search this forum (and in Java in General -intermediate & Advanced forums) with "difference JVM JRE" as the search words. You will get enough information on this topic.

or just read the official documentation from Sun.
But why think for yourself, right?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
