JRE (Java Runtime Environment) - Definition

JRE is an abbreviation for Java Runtime Environment. Java is a programming language and since it is a newer language, it is not natively supported by all operating systems. Therefore, a Java Runtime Environment is required for Java applets and Java applications to run. JRE is developed by Sun Microsystems Inc. and includes the Java Virtual Machine libraries and components, which are necessary to run programs that are written in Java. The JRE is available for multiple computer platforms, including Mac, Windows, and Unix, and provides a runtime environment in which Java programs can run.
