The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is basically the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) where your Java programs are being executed. It also includes browser plugins for applet execution. The Java Development Kit (JDK) is the full-featured Software Development Kit for Java, including the JRE, the compilers and tools (like JavaDoc, and Java Debugger), in order for a user to develop, compile and execute Java applications.

JDK stands for the term : Java Development Kit. JRE stands for the term: Java Runtime Environment.
JDK is the tool for compilng, documenting and packaging Java software. JRE is a runtime environment. JavaByte code gets executed in the environment.
