    i thought you are not familiar of java basics.with out basics you can't be familiar in java.so first be familiar in basics.
    you can use same java file for different os.
    so java is a platform independent.
    ok.

    Thank you for your reply...
    What you said is right! but we need JVM or JRE to run that file...
    I am right.
    Then how we can say Java is a Platform Independent?

    Default Independence Day ...

    Platform independece means that the same java program can run on multiple HW platforms (obviously if those platforms have the Java VM installed on them). See the following link:

    Adding bit more,

    As an example think about .Net application. To run that application on different PC you need .Net framework installed.

    Same in Java, to run a Java application obviously you need JVM.

    So what's the major difference. In .Net you cannot run the same application on each H/W platforms, even you have installed the .Net framework. So you have to do different modification for different H/W(sometime for OS too).

    But in Java no need to do that. "Write Once and Run Anywhere"
