JVM emulator.

By shahrukh ·
Is JVM emulator some kind of code responsible for providing
the java byte code with an interface? Does a java enabled
browser contain such an emulator? Is it a program that is different
for different browsers? Is it something like an API?

JVM emulator.

by Bill Sprouse In reply to JVM emulator.

JVM stands for Java Virtual Machine and is the part of a Java system which emulates a platform independent system. It hides all aspects of the underlying system from the Java code. This allows Java code to run on completely different platforms such as an AS/400 or a Sun workstation as easily as it would on a PC or Macintosh. Normal software would have to have specific versions built for each different machine, especially when different CPU's are involved. In essence the JVM replaces the CPUspecifics and OS tasks with a generic Java CPU and Java OS that works the same on any machine. A much more indepth paper on the subject can be found at http://members.dencity.com/jitendra/javaworld/jvm.txt

I agree with the answer provided in that it covers up your Java from the user, making it underlying.
API? Well, sort of, in a certain way, though not really like it.
