Dear all,


I had downloaded java jdk1.5.0_03 and jre1.5.0_03 when i open jdk1.5.0_03 folder there is one folder by name jre as we know Jdk consists of jre where jre is the implementation of JVm and is used at runtime then what is the use of jre1.5.0_03 .please clear me the difference between jre (folder inside JDK )and jre1.5.0_03
