Wat is the difference between JDK and JRE?

A lot of times, we have seen that people ( obviously novices in the field of java) dont know the exact difference between JDK and JRE. Just to make Java get a lil more closer to our readers, we thought of putting up the difference between the two in this writeup.

“JDK” is the Java Development Kit. I.e., JDK is a bundle of software that you can use to develop Java based software. The “JRE” is the Java Runtime Environment. I.e., the JRE is an implementation of the Java Virtual Machine which actually executes the Java Programs.Typically, each JDK contains one (or more) JRE’s along with the various development tools like the Java source compilers, bundling and deployment tools, debuggers, development libraries, etc.

Look, so simple it was.. .. 🙂
