that depends...
unfortunately the dos idea of a dll was a bit misimplemented my microsoft, but the basic idea came from the notion of shared libraries.
under different unices you'll find slightly different implementations of the shared libraries concept, implementing it variously in both a static or dynamic framework.
the *.sl file (dynamic), the *.a file (static), and the *.so files (dynamic) are all variations on the theme.

Thanks for reply..
and since I dont know, what is the difference between static and dynamic compiled code. In Java a compiled code is a compiled code
(which is not machine code). So when it is changed into machine executable code, is it static or dynamic in nature?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
