JAVA compiler

I know this should probably be under the programming forum, but what's a good and small command-line based Java compiler/linker? I'd like to start learning JAVA, but I don't have much space on my laptop and I need a decent compiler for that platform. I'd like to be able to code in vi or something vs. having to use the compiler to code.

I think your choices are blackdown and suns JDK, I know the sun one definitely has a compiler.

Install JDK and thn download DrJava- its a simple IDE and that should be all that you need.
other option - like palin and rmartine suggested just get java sdk and use any text editor(gedit or vi) to type up your code.
Good luck
