Java Runtime Environment Environment (JRE) is a platform that allows users to play online games, calculate their mortgage interest, view images in 3D, and chat with new people allow the world. It is integral to many internet applications and e-business solutions that are built on the foundation of corporate computing. The platform was first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995 and was made default to many applications and websites. Many websites and applications cannot run unless the user has Java installed, with more apps being created every day. Java is considered to be the heart of the digital lifestyle as it is being used as an integral part in launching careers, architecting the world’s best applications, exploring the human-to-digital interface, or unlocking innovation everywhere ranging from garages to global organizations. Many of the cross-platforms sites and applications too require Java to operate for which JRE plays an important role.

Features of Java Runtime Environment

  • Contents: The JRE provides all the libraries, components and the Java Virtual Machine that are required to run the applets and applications written in the Java language. There are two-key deployment technologies that are part of the JRE – The Java Plugin, which are required to enable applets to be able to run in browsers and Web Start, which are required to deploy standalone applications over one networks or multiple networks seamlessly by the user.

  • Enhancements: The platforms consist of very important enhancements that improve stability, performance, the security of the java application that are running on the user’s machine. By installing this feature, the update will ensure that the user’s applications are being run safely and efficiently.

  • Java-Virtual Machine: The Java-virtual machine (JVM) contains all the platform’s core classes and the java platform libraries that support them. The virtual machine is a runtime portion of the user’s software which is required to run the application in the web browser.

  • Java Plug-in: Since a program is a component of the JRE, the java runtime environment allows applets written in the programming language to be run inside various internet browsers too. This makes the plug-in software not a standalone program; therefore, users have to install them separately.

  • Differences: Many users have confusion regarding what would be terms between a virtual machine and JVM. The virtual machine is just one aspect of software that would be involved in a web interaction whereas the java virtual machine is built right int the user’s software download and help run the java apps present.
