Please note that as of October 24, 2014, the Nokia Developer Wiki will no longer be accepting user contributions, including new entries, edits and comments, as we begin transitioning to our new home, in the Windows Phone Development Wiki. We plan to move over the majority of the existing entries. Thanks for all your past and future contributions.
Java Runtime Environment
Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is a software platform from Sun Microsystems that contains Java Virtual Machine (JVM), Java libraries and some other components. JRE allows a computer to run Java-based applications.
JRE is needed by some of the Symbian OS and S60 tools, for example:
- ECMT, a collection of tools from S60 SDK, e.g. remote logging, emulator configuration, etc.
- SISAR (shipped with Symbian OS 6.1 SDKs and older).
- AIF Builder (shipped with Symbian OS 6.1 SDKs and older).
Carbide.c++ and Carbide.j IDE, which are based on Eclipse, is also running on JRE. However, JRE is shipped together with the product; so the end users do not need to download JRE separately.
