Q: Why java is platform independent?

The most unique feature of java is platform independent. In any programming language soruce code is

compiled in to executable code . This cannot be run across all platforms. When javac compiles a java

program it generates an executable file called .class file.

class file contains byte codes. Byte codes are interpreted only by JVM’s . Since these JVM’s are made

available across all platforms by Sun Microsystems, we can execute this byte code in any platform. Byte

code generated in windows environment can also be executed in linux environment. This makes java

platform independent.
