What makes Java Platform Independent?
When we compile a java file, we get a class file which contains bytecode. JVM converts bytecode to executable instructions as per the respective operating system. Executable instructions are different for each operating system. So, JVM is different for every operating system.
The platform dependency of JVM makes Java platform independent.
Platform independent language means once compiled you can execute the program on any platform (OS).
Java is platform independent. Because the Java compiler converts the source code to bytecode, which is Intermidiate Language. Bytecode can be executed on any platform (OS) using JVM( Java Virtual Machine).
