Welcome to the Ranch.
First of all, please use a real user name on the Ranch.
Does not look like pretend toBSmart is your real name.

Would be good if you read How to ask a question on javaranch to get great people answer to your questions.

And your answer is-
(Almost)Every computer program has a source code that humans read and an executable binary which the computer runs.
In a typical java application source folder contains the human readable code and bin contains the binary ( 10101110001100110011100001110000111000 ) that the java virtual machine executes.
Which is why it is called executable.

Please change your username immediately and read the link above.

Also this question should be in the Java in General forum instead.
