Java programming langauge. Java.exe allows you to run java programs on your computer, which may or may not be useful to you. This is no longer installed by default on most platforms, except perhaps sun solaris; though many programs do use it. *IS* typically used by large companies for their own custom software (don't remove this if you're at work!). Required or recommended if you're using OpenOffice  See also: Link Kim Bruning
