As Scala requires separate installation then how does it it use the same JVM as Java?

On a machine where Java had been installed ,Scala requires separate installation. Given this ,how does it work out that Scala uses the same JVM as what Java was using on the machine ?
Thanks

I think the reason is that when we download Scala , it downloads only the compiler part whereas for the interpreter part it uses JVM same way as any Java code does.
