Jasmin, isn't a programming language but an assembler for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). It's different from Java's javac because Jasmin operates on JVM assembly code. Programmers use text files that contain instructions for assembling the bytecode that drives the JVM. This lets them write snippets of platform-independent code directly in an assembly-like syntax and combine those manually with high-level code or other pre-assembled components to create complex applications—useful in teaching the internals of JVM to students studying computer science and environments where direct control over bytecode generation is beneficial.
