Description: The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) - Oracle contains the Java virtual machine, runtime class libraries, and Java application launcher that are necessary to run programs written in the Java programming language. While this program contains everything required to run Java applications on the user`s system, this product is not a development environment and does not contain development utilities such as compilers or debuggers.

The Java Platform, Standard Edition Runtime Environment (JRE), is intended for software developers and vendors to redistribute with their applications.

As of this writing, Oracle has no plans to release a separate JRE for Java 11 and later and users will be required to install the full Oracle JDK to support Java 11 and beyond.

NOTE: This entry only covers the Oracle professional versions of Java. This entry does NOT cover or include approvals for OpenJDK Java. OpenJDK has its own TRM entry and users should consult that entry for decisions on OpenJDK.
