This term has several different meanings and can only be correctly interpreted in the context in which it is used. One widely used meaning is related to the Java system, in which bytecode is the name given to the intermediate code produced (compiled) from the source code by a Java compiler. This bytecode is standardized by the Sun Corporation and is interpreted by the Java virtual machine. The term ‘bytecode’ is also used in the context of microbrowsers, where it is understood to mean the translated code produced from a hypertext document by the bytecode converter. The result of this translation is the bytecode, which is then interpreted by the microbrowser.
