I have a question about Eclipse, JDK, JRE and JVM. From what I understand so far.
Eclipse compiles your source code and runs your program
The JDK has a compiler called javac that turns your java source code into java byte code.
JVM- a machine that acts like a real computer that runs your java byte code.
JRE- this is where all the available classes in the JAVA API is located in
In the event if a computer does not have the JVM, where does the user actually find one? Is the JVM in a processor chip or microprocessor because in wikiapedia, it said intel x86 jvm. So I was confused about this.
I'm sure this post will help people who are starting new to Java who questions why they need to install these things.
