"java" command is used to run the application , but what is happening behind the scenes ?
does it start the JVM ?? or simply loads the class into the JVM ??

Do you know why Java programmers wear specs ? Its because they don't 'C#'

I think the answer is the same as I gave you to your other question. Same Java Language Specification link. Try §12.
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
