I think JDK documentation answers some parts of your question

#6 in the points to a few different JVMs. If you write your own OS you'll need to write a JVM for it (or port OpenJDK to it).

Sree Chinna, I think it would have been helpful to post a link to that documentation. Try here, then look for the block called "hotspot client VM" near the bottom of the diagram.

You can install the JVM onto most well-known OSs, but don't know about your own OS!
