JVM(Java virtual machine):it is the runtime environment for java programs and it contains the following :
1)class loader
2)byte code verifier
3)jit compiler and interpreter
java is a platform independent language which means it can be operated in any operating system

when you execute a program in C && C++ a .exe file is obtained which contains the source code
and operating system details where as when you execute a program in java a .class file is created which contains the byte code(source code) only.It is the JVM which links this byte code with the operating system details.

JVM: As it name specifies, it is a virtual computer placed on top of your hardware and os. when ever a java application is called an jvm instance is created. The thread from os creates the jvm instance.
Inside the jvm the Class loadersubsystem loads your compiled javabyte code to the memory. The JVM creates the instance of your class object.the objectinstance is stored in the heap.The non-demon thread executes your methods inside your object instance and finally the non-demon thread is destoryed and the jvm instance is also ended.

running a program means "tell the JVM to load the class and start and executing its main()
method."a class file gets created
which is converted into bytecodes by the jvm.this output is then interpreted by the processor to produce the desired output. Source: CoolInterview.com
