The Sun JRE consists of a redistributable executable, some DLLs, and some class files. It is one component of the Sun Java SDK, but a number of other Windows applications include or depend on a JRE.

For simplicity, we'll consider the Microsoft JVM that came with Windows ME to be a Sun JRE, as well.

Native Alternatives:

  • Sun provides its JRE for Solaris and Linux.  See for the free download.
  • ¬≠Kaffe is a clean room implementation of the Java virtual machine, plus the associated class libraries needed to provide a Java runtime environment.
  • Other JVMs for Linux x86 exist as well.
