Hi All,

After installing jdk,i can see jre in C:\jdk150_11.
tried to look jvm.I did search and got below files.

jdk150_11\jre\bin\client\ jvm.dll
jdk150_11\jre\bin\server\ jvm.dll
jdk150_11\jre\lib\ jvm.hprof.txt

1.In the above files,which one represents jvm ?.

2. I got from net JRE contains JVM.But jdk150_11\lib folder also contains jvm.lib.Then can we say other than JRE ,JDK also contains JVM ?.

3.http://faq.javaranch.com/java/JavaBeginnersFaq says "A JVM (Java Virtual Machine) is an imaginary (theoretical) machine that executes Java bytecodes. "
If it is imaginary machine,what about jvm.dll ?.

Please clarify me.

Why do you think one file must be the jvm? That's like saying "what one file represents Windows?"

large software applications are often written in pieces, and all those files work together to create the actual application.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
