About the software

The JRE is used to run a broad variety of Java programs including Java applications on desktops. The JDK is for Java developers. It contains a complete JRE as described above and tools required to create Java programs, sign code, generate documentation, etc. The JDK also ships several tools meant to monitor and debug programs.

So where does the Server JRE fit in? From the perspective of common server-side applications, the JRE is missing monitoring tools and, in the case of applications that compile Java source code at run-time, javac. On the other hand, the JDK includes additional functionality that system administrators may not need on their production systems like the Java Plugin for web browsers, auto update agents, and development tools like javadoc.

Enter the Server JRE: The Server JRE was designed for server-side applications by including just the commonly required features from the JRE and JDK. The Server JRE does not have a dedicated installer: It is simply a compressed directory for easier use.

The main features of Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) are:

  • ClassLoader.
  • Bytecode verifier.
  • Interpreter.
  • Deployment solutions.
  • Development toolkits.
  • Integration libraries.
  • Language and utility libraries.
