    I'm a little bit confused by your question... there aren't really "types" of Java that I'm aware of. There is stuff like Java EE (Enterprise Edition) but that's not what you're looking for.

    I'd just pick up a regular Java book at your local bookstore and dive in. Download an IDE too (I like NetBeans, but a lot of people use Eclipse).

    If you get one of the IDEs, you can compile and run from within it. Other than that, do a quick Google for "JDK" (Java Development Kit) and download that.

    Get at least JDK 6.
    No point going for earlier versions.
    And get them from Sun...

    Don't rely on the stuff that comes with an IDE (unless it's Netbeans, which comes with the Sun JDKs I think). They can have...quirks.

    Also, use the Sun tutorials. Make sure you do the basics stuff first. Do not leap into Applets, Swing, JDBC or any of the other stuff until you grasp the basics.
