Java programs are processed on server. So we require JRE on server. After executing a Java program, result is sent to browser in HTML.
Is a java program executed on client side ? Many times, I require JRE on client side, otherwise result i not getting displayed. Why do we need JRE on client side, if program is executed on server side ? What is sent from server to the browser which needs JRE ?

Thanks

Sounds like the server is sending down an applet, which is a Java program that is intended to execute inside the browser. It can give you a more dynamic, interactive experience than is possible with just HTML. Applets are rather out of fashion though. Most client-side fancy UI stuff is done with JavaScript (which is completely separate from Java) or Flash or something.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
