View Full Version : 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.
