Java Question

can I run more than one JVM on my single PC?

Can I run more than one JVM? If yes then how can I find a particular class is loaded on which JVM?

Answer

It's not entirely clear what you mean, but:

  • You can have more than one VM (version / brand etc) installed on the same machine
  • You can run more than one java process, whether of the same JVM version or different ones

Unless you're running a debugging agent or something similar, I don't know of any way to ask a JVM process whether it's loaded a particular class. It seems a bit of an odd requirement - why do you want to do this?
