Nexus support Java?

I have a review course I use online, via a browser, that requires Java.  I'm trying to access it on a Nexus.

I click install but nothing happens.

Does the Nexus support Java?

To run java you need a JVM (Java Virtual Machine). Android uses Dalvik Virtual Machine which is not the same thing. As far as I know there is no jvm or Java Runtime Environment for android and it is not possible to get java applets running natively on android. There are emulators out there, but I have never tried them

In answer to your question: No, android smartphones do not support Java.

They claim open source credentials but Android is owned by Google and Java is owned by Oracle, and ne'er the twain shall meet.
