What is it that you want to achieve ?

I don't think that java can be used to make plugins.

I want to do something like we have some extensions for browsers.
For eg. If we are working in Salesforce and Using a chrome extension like 'HotKeys' we ease our work in salesforce.

Well, he might still be able to use java and convert the code to a native executable file or more likely a .so (shared object) lib, or a Windows DLL in order to make a browser plugin:

https://gcc.gnu.org/java/

In this case, you do not need a JVM to run the java code, it is transformed in native code and there is no more java byte code left. Of course, the draw back is that you lose portability.

Sounds far too difficult for this forum: moving discussion.
