JVM: Java Virtual Machine

Definition

A Java Virtual Machine (JVM), a crucial component of the Java Platform originally developed by Sun Microsystems, is a virtual machine that executes Java bytecode.

This code is most often generated by Java language compilers, although the JVM has also been targeted by compilers of other languages.

The availability of JVMs on many types of hardware and software platforms enables Java to function both as middleware and a platform in its own right.

Different computers require different JVMs but they should run the same Java code.

This means that servers only need to provide one version of each applet, instead of different 'native code' versions for PCs, Apple Macintoshes, and UNIX workstations, as is the case with other plug-ins.Kazaa Lite K++ Kazaa Lite K++ is a later versions of Kazaa Lite included K++, which added a memory patcher that removed search limit restrictions, multi-source limits, and set one's "participation level" to the maximum of 1000.
