Java Virtual Machine

From Rosetta Code
(Redirected from Java virtual machine)
Java Virtual Machine is a virtual machine. Other virtual machines.

The Java Virtual Machine or JVM interprets Java byte code (compiled Java code) and runs the program. JVM's have been created for many different platforms, which gives Java its platform-independent nature. It manages memory usage via a garbage collector. It also manages concurrent threads (the programmer can attempt to control certain threads, though).

JVM languages[edit]

A language can run inside JVM if it compiles to Java bytecode, or its interpreter runs inside JVM.
