Java Virtual Machine


A compilation unit in a Java program contains classes and/or interfaces. The Java compiler compiles each class or interface into a class file, which is represented in a platform-independent binary format. A Java runtime system loads a class from the class file when it needs the class. It executes instructions in compiled methods loaded from class files.
