I am new in Java and want to write my first program in Java but based on my research, before write a program i need to install some compiler,editor (command line or IDE) and set environment variables, i tried to search all these things but very confused regarding this, can someone provide me step by step process of do all these task . thanks
That link dark posted will be a good starting point, I'll also give you a link to a video I like. I also suggest you avoid ides, and use a simpler editor(notepad++, notepad, etc).
TheNewBoston – Free Educational Video Tutorials on Computer Programming and More! » Java Programming Tutorial – 1 – Installing the JDK
Some of my signature links may be helpful as well.
I think notepad++ is a good one to start with. It gives you some basic functionality like auto indenting which is nice while not really allowing you to cheat and skip out on some areas. Makes you get your hands dirty.
I am very sorry,i didnt follow posting rules, will follow it in my next post,however i am very thankful for very replies.
What rules are you worried about breaking?
I agree with dark btw, notepad++ - me gusta
Thanks for the reply, i though i need to follow some posting guide lines before posting a new thread.
One more query, do you suggest any good and friendly book of Java for beginners? Thanks
No need to worry, you haven't violated and rules (yet?) unless you've crossposted this all over the world in many different forums. Oh, and welcome to this forum.

There's a link in Sunde's signature, he reviews a lot of resources.
when i tried to open the link then i received the following error.

Thanks, will keep in touch with you.
Here is a slightly out of date book recomendation post: Helping beginners get started. « Sunde's Blog
The post has many similar books, however; at the time some were books I hadn't read, the newer one, which I wrote when these forums offered blogs, contains some more books that I have completed reading since the first post.
