What is Java Virtual Machine (JVM)?


The Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is a real name dropper when you’re programming in Java. Contrary to what the name indicates, the Java Virtual Machine can be encountered in relation with other programming languages as well.
In general, it’s not necessary to know what the Java Virtual Machine is, or even what it does, to be able to program in Java. On the other hand, familiarizing yourself with the inner workings of a machine does help to increase your understanding and overall insight.
This article brushes over the idea of the Java Virtual Machine, what it does for you, and some of the most important pros and cons. Although I’ve tried to keep it simple, and there is definitely more advanced literature on the subject, a rudimentary understanding of Java and programming is expected.
