    Java linkage?

    I was just wondering, are libraries in Java linked into the code in the same fassion as C/C++ linkers, where the libraries are added to the code at compilation, or are the libraries in Java loaded at runtime by the JVM? This is something I never really thought about, and never heard talked about in my java class last semester. Anyone please?

    Java libraries are loaded at run time by the Java virtual machine, as you thought.
