JDK, SDK, JDT, JRE, what is all this stuff? why do i need it?
i'm suffering from a google information overload!
half way through a tutorial, it starts going on about the project properties and attaching sources to things. importing JARs and all sorts of stuff.
some i kinda follow some of it i'll get to grips with, with practice i'm sure.
But, I dont have a JDK installed. (or maybe its not where it should be)
after a bit of googling i am a bit confused as to which flavour of JDK i need.
theres a few with all kinds of letters like EE, FX, SE and others
obviously I have the JRE installed, i Know I need that.
will i need to uninstall that before i install the JDK?
I have something in eclipse called the JDT or is it SDK or is it both, i'm not too sure but, I am half Guessing from google that the JDK is some sort of extension of that.
some simple clarification would be useful to me. Do I really need it, and if so which flavour do I need??
thanks in advance,
