Welcome to CodeRanch!

There isn't just one compiler. OpenJDK is written in Java. I don't remember if Oracle's compiler is written in Java or C off the top of my head, but I think it is Java too now.

I wasn't sure if it was C or C++, so I looked. The answer was C++ for open jdk.

Is this for a quiz or something? Otherwise, I can't see that knowing the answer to the question helps you much (unless you plan on writing a new JVM or compiler).

But hey, I'm all for trivia myself...

Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?
