Hi @Ankur K :-)

how can analytics know user age and gender with help of java code .
analytics doesnt use java code.. it uses javascript.. 

they are not the same thing, however the two are often confused for each other

The Google Analytics Help Docs have some good info on how Google Analytics gets this type of info

The Help Center is a good resource and a good place to check first when you have questions.
