Javascript/Java programming


I am running Ubuntu 9 and am curious what kind of programs are available for programming in java. I currently use Netbeans on my XP desktop but would like a linux equivalent to play with.

I should have realized Sun would put out a version of Netbeans for Linux. Thank you ...oh wise one.

Just FYI, Javascript != Java
Not even vaguely. They both have lots of curly brackets and objects, but that's about it.

Java is a general purpose bytecode interpreted language developed by Sun which runs in a Java Virtual Machine.
Javascript is (primarily) a browser scripting language developed by Mozilla which runs in your browser (primarily).

Thanks for the clarification. LOL! When I think Javascript, I think Java. I know they aren't the same thing but I still call it Java. I'll start smacking myself upside the head when I do it again.
