Just download the lated JSDK and install it on your system (probably a tarred gzip file) It is really simple, they even have a shell script to do it all for you.

The JSDK is just the compiler (javac) and the java application (java) to run programs, it isn't an IDE. No matter what IDE you use (like JBuilder etc) they will either have a JSDK with them (which is probably old) or they will ask you where yours is installed. I would recommend gettign the latest JSDK from sun installing it and then from you command prompt you have access to java and javac, but then if JBuilder doesn't work out for you try another IDE like NetBeans (which is pretty cool) or something as simple as NEdit or JEdit for just editing your code, then to compile it and run it do it via the command prompt. Albeit IDE's integrate that for you, it is good to know how to do if you are a java programmer. Good Luck and God's speed...

Yeah sorry about that, they have changed what they call it over the years, it used to be JDK (java development kit) and then JDSK (java standard development kit) now it is J2SE 1.4.2 SDK (java 2 standard edition 1.4.2 standard development kit)

On the right hand side of the page http://java.sun.com/ you will see it.
Good Luck...
