JVM stands for Java Virtual Machine. The JVM runs Java programs -- you can't run a Java program without one, just like you can't run most C programs on Windows without some flavor of MSVCRT.DLL. You can download Sun's no-cost JVMs for several platforms from http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html .

Java virtual machine is very important for java language.
We know that java is a cross platform language,
becaue of after compiling a java souce code(*.java),
it would create a btye code(*.class),
and be executed by any OS or hardware computers which have been installed the java virtual machine.
So the java virtual machine is the key in cross platform.
I am new here,
please tolerate my poor English.
