What is the Difference between JDK and JRE ?
The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is basically the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) where your Java programs are being executed. It also includes browser plugins for applet execution. The Java Development Kit (JDK) is the full featured Software Development Kit for Java, including the JRE, the compilers and tools (like
Java Debugger), in order for a user to develop, compile and execute Java applications.
