As was pointed out to you recently, if there's DOS, then there is not necessarily Windows. A JVM for DOS does not exist. There are also other (mostly older) OSes that do not have a JVM.

Well, DOS will *not* have a built in JVM -- as Java was not invented until many years after DOS.

However, there are a few thirdparty JVMs, that apparently work with DOS. I have never tried it myself, so can't say for sure. Just google for "DOS" and "Java".
