What's In the SDK?

The SDK consists of the following items:

  • A JVM, or Java Virtual Machine

  • A Java compiler, which takes a plain text source code file and turns it into executable bytecodes

  • appletviewer, a program for viewing applets

  • A debugger

  • Example java programs

  • A tool for creating and managing security keys

  • A remote method stub and skeleton generator

  • A registry server for handling remote method invocations (method calls coming from objects on a different JVM)

  • C and C++ headers for extending the JVM with interfaces to native code

  • Native libraries for embedding a JVM into other native applications

  • Native libraries for the portions of the JVM that are platform dependent, such as those that help generate graphical user interface components.
