ANS: What is Bytecode

Java source code is compiled into intermediated languages called bytecode. Bytecode cannot be directly executed on any platform. The bytecode can be run on a platform only if there’s a JVM installed on that machine for that platform. For example if I have with me compiled java code in the form of bytecode and I wish to run it on an Intel machine running Windows XP, I need to first install a JVM on that machine meant for running bytecode fro that configuration.

Thus, the bytecode can be run in any hardware that has a JVM fro that machine platform. And since java code compiles into bytecode, it does not need to be recompiled for any platform. And so, emerged the WORA  concept.
