Of course there are.  Remember, the JVM is the layer between the Java
bytecodes and the actual operating system.  As such, the JVM is
effectively an application native to the operating system.  You wouldn't
expect IBM's JVM for OS/400 to run on Windows NT, would you?

Exactly.  You couldn't run a Windows JVM on a Sun any more than you
could run WRKDBF on Windows CE.

Cheers,

Martin.
