What is a source file in Java?

Java class file. A Java class file is usually produced by a Java compiler from Java programming language source files (.java files) containing Java classes (alternatively, other JVM languages can also be used to create class files).

In this regard, what is the extension of a Java executable file?

Java "executables" are either .class or .jar files. It's common to deliver a script ( .bat file for Windows) with a Java program to run it. You can use Launch4J to create executable *.exe files from *.jar files, but this is platform specific and using runnable *.jar files is recommended.

Which extension is used to save the Java program?

In Java, programs are not compiled into executable files; they are compiled into bytecode (as discussed earlier), which the JVM (Java Virtual Machine) then executes at runtime. Java source code is compiled into bytecode when we use the javac compiler. The bytecode gets saved on the disk with the file extension .class .

What is the meaning of source code in Java?

Definition: Programmers write software programs using a programming language (e.g., Java). The programming language provides a series of instructions they can use to create the program they want. All the instructions a programmer uses to build the program are known as source code.
