    You will need to download the JDK Java Development Kit. Depending upon your level of expertise you can update the Windows environment variables. All this information is available on various locations. google is your friend.

    To write code you can use Notepad. For mor experienced people use an IDE such as Eclipse or Netbeans.

    Wink

    Java Download page: Java SE Downloads

    Installation instructions: Java Installation

    If you are starting with java learning, then "notepad" would be advisable to write your code with. But then you can chose any IDE of your choice.

    I might suggest a free text editor that at least does some syntax highlighting, as this really helps make it easier to read and keep organized.

    TextWrangler is a nice free text editor for programming on the Mac! I'm a big fan of textMate too. Bare Bones Software | Download TextWrangler

    Sublime Text seems like a really spiffy up an coming text editor, and I'm def. keeping my eye on the new mac version: Sublime Text - Download

    I rather enjoy using notepad++. If you are going to use any non IDE you will have to learn how to compile in terminal/cmd.

    You need a JDK link:
    Then You need BlueJ link:
    This is all you need as a beginner.
