Hi Ulf Dittmer,Rahul,
Thanks for your replies.
Ulf, from your reply,
"The JVM can do both bytecode interpretation and compilation to native code. The decision which code to interpret and which code to compile is made at runtime, but generally, most of the code will be compiled."
Do you mean, that JVM can compile the .class file to native machine code?Can I compare this with microprocessor, opcode to mnemonics, similarly bytecodes(.class) to machine code?
