When I install a new J2SE version then there are 3 java runtimes:

1.) C:\Program files\Java\jdk\bin\java.exe

2.) C:\Program files\Java\jdk\jre\bin\java.exe

3.) C:\Program files\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe

Ok, the difference between the first and the second java.exe is that the first is WITH included debugging info compiled
and the second not.

But what is the difference between the second and the third java.exe?

AGAIN: I am NOT searching for the difference between JDK and JRE !!!!!!

I am searching for the difference between the TWO JRE's !!!!
