That is the Java runtime that is needed by some web sites in order to
operate correctly. It is not a program you use for anything, but something
some other programs need for them to work. It does not show up in my
notification area until a program activates it.

Java is a programming language and the Java runtime translates Java scripted
instructions into machine instructions for your specific computer.
