Can Java files be compiled using JRE if we don't have JDK?

Is it possible to compile the *.java class and generate the corresponding .class file if I have only JRE instead of JDK? How by default Eclipse compliles the Java files?

A JRE is not sufficient to compile files, as it does not contain a compiler (in contrast to the JDK). Eclipse, on the other hand, comes with its own compiler.
