If you follow one of the links above, you can download NetBeans IDE and the SDK along with the VM. Setting up is the same as windows but the paths are different of course. If you cannot find the java or javac after you install, then do a

find / -name javac

and make a note of the path. Then you can go to


and add the compiler and VM to your regular search path. In windows this is the same as changing your PATH variable. The java web site has very good step by step installation instructions if you need help installing.
