The Java class file is a precisely defined format for compiled Java. Java source code is compiled into class files that can be loaded and executed by any JVM. The class files may travel across a network before being loaded by the JVM.

The Java class file contains everything a JVM needs to know about one Java class or interface. In their order of appearance in the class file, the major components are: magic, version, constant pool, access flags, this class, super class, interfaces, fields, methods, and attributes.
