What do I download to learn/program java?


I went to the sun website but all I see are upgrades to JDK 6, I dont see where to download the actual JDK.

Anyone know where I can download the JDK for Linux?

There is usually a package available in your non-oss repos for your distro (Ubuntu and SUSE definitely have it), but java.sun.com has the right things to download. You want the JDK6 package and most likely you'll want an IDE as well. I suggest NetBeans, though others like Eclipse

Eclipse will serve you the most , its easy to use and supports multiple languages .
If you want to use java in command line format , after installing eclipse you can have the javac compiler in your box .
Google leenotes+ java which is the most basic tutorial to learn this incredible language
Enjoy Java buddy !!!!!!!

I cannot download anything from the SUN website. Is the site down or something? I cant even get the download to start. After clicking on the download link it just hangs and I cant get to the actual download.

The problem with Eclipse is that it doesn't have a GUI designer. I prefer Netbeans for that reason -- I prefer creating GUI interfaces without suffering through doing it by hand.

http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads...jdk_javafx.jsp Click through from there That also has the JavaFX SDK, which is easier to utilise in NetBeans than in Eclipse

Eclipse has the Visual Editor, it's quite excellent. It also generates sane code that you can actually tweak without it getting mad at you.
