You didn't find any exe's? I think you would find the answer to your question if you ask for: how does java really provide platform independence for your applications?

I think you're confused about the terminology. The class libraries contain neither DLLs nor EXEs. They consist of class files (stored within jar files) and nothing else. The JVM is an EXE (using some DLLs as well), as are the other Java tools (like jar, javac, etc.)
