Java Runtime EnvironmentOracle - Freeware
The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) contains everything your computer needs in order to run Java applications or load Java applets in your browser. Java technology is an object-oriented, platform-independent, multithreaded programming environment. It is the foundation for Web and networked services, applications, platform-independent desktops, robotics, and other embedded devices. This enabled countless developers from all around the world to easily create web-content that can be easily reproduced on all modern internet connected devices, without the need to optimize app for each individual browser, operating system or platform. As of 2014, it is reported that Java Runtime Environment enabled devices have surpassed the number of 5.5 billion, making JVM (Java Virtual Machine) the most popular process virtual machine in the entire world.
