does the JVM version also gets changed with JDK releases?

if yes where can i find the latest JVM books?

i found some books on http://www.artima.com/jvm/booklist.html but i am not sure if the are still worth to read or i should look for new versions?

Thanks,
Punit

Yes. I don't know whether those books are out of date: have you read the JVM specification?

What, specifically, interests you about the JVM? They don't contain much that is of interest to most developers.

just wanted to understand how JVM treats our classes.
how it makes our class files as platform independent.

and yes, what all happens at compile time and what all happens at runtime, not sure if JVM book explain this as well.

Start here: http://www.artima.com/insidejvm/ed2/index.html. The book is old, but I suspect for your purposes that does not make much of a difference.

And read #18 in the http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/JavaBeginnersFaq so you know the differences between JVM, JRE and JDK.
