What is the difference between a Java compiler and a Java interpreter?

John Mitchell

Typically, when used in that generic manner, the term Java compiler refers to a program which translates Java language source code into the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) bytecodes. The term Java interpreter refers to a program which implements the JVM specification and actually executes the bytecodes (and thereby running your program).
