jdk is the development kit that a programmer uses to make java programs. Jre is the runtime environment that interprets the compiled java program and translates it to be compatible with the end users computer.

A Java virtual machine (JVM) is an abstract computing machine that enables a computer to run a Java program. There are three notions of the JVM: specification, implementation and instance. The specification is a document that formally describes what is required of a JVM implementation.
