Hi,

Please let me know where can I see JVM on my system. I was told that it is part of JRE. If so, where is JVM direcory/location under JRE.

I think in windows it's the jvm.dll file present in <JAVA_HOME>/jre/bin/server and <JAVA_HOME>/jre/bin/client. Need confirmation from other ranchers.

Thanks Soumyajit. I found jvm.dll at C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\client and couldn't find "server" folder at C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin.

Sorry my mistake. The server folder for jdk1.6 you will get in "jdk1.6.0_02\jre\bin\server" this location.

Thanks Soumyajit. Now, I can see at both spots

Hi Gari Jain, Just wanted to know where jvm is located..I am not going to do anything with jvm.dll

BTW, How come JRE is existing under Java folder and under java\jdk folder.
C:\Program Files\java\jre1.5.0_02\bin\client
C:\Program Files\java\jdk1.5.0_15\jre\bin\server
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
