Differences between JDK and JRE

Learn about key differences between Java Development Kit and Java Runtime Environment
31 October 2017   1936

JRE: Java Runtime Environment. It is basically the Java Virtual Machine where your Java programs run on. It also includes browser plugins for Applet execution.

JDK: It's the full featured Software Development Kit for Java, including JRE, and the compilers and tools (like JavaDoc, and Java Debugger) to create and compile programs.

Usually, when you only care about running Java programs on your browser or computer you will only install JRE. It's all you need. On the other hand, if you are planning to do some Java programming, you will also need JDK.

Sometimes, even though you are not planning to do any Java Development on a computer, you still need the JDK installed. For example, if you are deploying a WebApp with JSP, you are technically just running Java Programs inside the application server. Why would you need JDK then? Because application server will convert JSP into Servlets and use JDK to compile the servlets. I am sure there might be more examples.

16 April 2019   290

The developers of Bisq presented a new version of the decentralized exchange (v1.0).

The project repository on GitHub notes that version 1.0 is the most important milestone in the development of the Bisq platform.

Thus, the new version of the software implements a decentralized autonomous organization mechanism (Bisq DAO). It allows exchange users to directly participate in project management.

For example, those who contribute to the development of Bisq may receive rewards in BSQ tokens. Also, the use of these assets can reduce trade commissions by 90%.

Among other changes - bug fixes, minor improvements to the user interface.
