bytecode

[′bīt‚kōd]
(computer science)
Compiled Java programs that can be transferred across a network and executed by the Java virtual machine.

bytecode

An intermediate language that requires a runtime program for execution. For example, the source code of Java and Microsoft's .NET languages is compiled into their particular type of bytecode, which is executed by their runtime engines (see Java and .NET Framework). WebAssembly, which can be used instead of JavaScript routines in Web pages, generates bytecode (see WebAssembly).


Java Bytecode
Java programs are compiled into bytecode, which is translated into machine language at runtime by the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). There are JVMs for almost every environment, enabling Java to run in most computers. See runtime engine.







No Bytecode - No Runtime Engine
In compiled languages such as C/C++, the machine language is executed in the computer. See C.

The current version of the system enables measurements of three different kinds of indicators: a) the indicators to measure the speed and the quality of the algorithm (the so called EM indicators), b) the project-specific counters to count the usage of the parts of the algorithm's program code (the so called CNT indicators), and c) the counters of the Java byte code usage (the so called JVM indicators).
Static application security testing is a type of security testing that analyses application source code, including byte code and binaries, for coding and design conditions that may indicate security vulnerabilities.
Once compiled the intermittent JVM or Java Virtual Machine takes compiled byte code and converts it into machine code which is understood by the machine.
