JDK vs JRE : What should I install ?

JDK - Java Development Kit

JDK contains the Java development tool kit with the Java Run time Environment. Basically this is required for Java development. Testing & deployment will also be supported as this contains the JRE and the other required tools along.


JRE - Java Run time Environment

JRE is the run time which helps to run a java program. If you want to run Java program but not to develop, you can use JRE straightly.


What should I install ?

JDK for developing Java Applications. JRE for running Java Applications, but not for developing them.
