i'm not an expert, but i'll give it a shot...

java is a language YOU can read and understand.

bytecode is a language the Java Virtual Machine (jvm) can understand.

native code is a language that your MACHINE can understand.

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

I think there's another post from today about the subject with links that might interest you:

What happens after code is compiled ?

Hope it helps.
