i downloaded java SDK includes jre and installed it. and i now difference between them, jre to run java program and, sdk is development kit which include compiler etc..and my code is running ,i mean i wrote to test my installations and it is working i compiled and run it. but i dont understand why my JRE is not working..None of the browser could detect my jre. So i go and download only jre and install it. After this installation browser can detect my jre.
Now my question: is there any thing that after install the SDK that i should do to be able to run jre?

The SDK includes the JRE. That should include the plugins for the browsers. So there was just some problem there.

The JRE that is inside the SDK subdirectory is only to run the SDK's tools. Still the SDK should install a proper JRE as well.

If you can run your "Hello" program, then your JRE is working. It sounds like your browser (IE?) was just missing a Java plugin.
I agree. Here's the link:
