The door to the world of Java is open to you

Java is a programming language that can change the world in the hands of a skilled wizard. Despite the fact that this language is quite difficult to learn for those people who start learning programming with it, its possibilities are truly limitless. Therefore, all efforts are worth it.

However, in order to correctly run Java programs on a Windows PC it is necessary to have a special software - Java Runtime Environment. We will tell you about what it is and what functionality it contains.

What is this program

The Java Runtime Environment is a virtual machine that contains its own development environment and certain Java libraries. It is primarily needed to run some games and applications that were developed using Java technology.

What purposes is it suitable for

This software gives you the possibility to correctly display old sites where part of the functionality works in Java. It also allows you to run many indie and online games on your computer. Plus, some social networking web applications also require the Java Runtime Environment to run correctly.

Java Runtime Environment would be more useful for office workers and developers. In the first case, the program allows you to produce closed reporting, to work with important documents within the corporate network. In the second case, it can interest the developers writing in Java and not only. According to JRE developers’ feedback, the program guarantees reliability, comfort of work and security of processed data.

Components for efficient work

The Java Runtime Environment contains the following components:

  • The JRE runtime platform is designed to support the operation of basic Java applets in the browser and applications, without the use of more advanced compilers and development environments. This module is a required component;

  • JVM is a basic virtual machine built into the software, which is needed to correctly run JRE on devices with different operating systems. It is also needed for the correct operation of programs that are written in the Java language but have different bit capabilities;

  • Java libraries would be more useful for developers as they allow optimizing Java code for working with other programming languages. For ordinary users, libraries can also be useful because they allow you to correctly process programs written not only in Java.

The availability of these components allows you to work with high-quality games and applications created in Java.
