    Default What do I need to write programs at home (help)

    I program at school. And, I am wanting to install Java on my computer at home and write programs. I would like to know what I need to download to do this. I would prefer to use TextPad to write my code. I have Windows XP SP2. Thanks!
    I am a Java n00b.

    Go to Java SE Downloads and choose the download marked with the header "JDK 6 Update 6". See installation instructions link under header.

    That's is download manager. Close it. Then go to this page.

    Click here.

    On that page select Platform as Windows. Accept the license agreement. And click continue.

    On next page you have two options. Off line or online download. Choose what you want.

    You get the download manager because of the inline installation. But it not directed to download. May be something is wrong there.

    Try it and see.

    Yep, That's what he wants to do. ;) Nice to see that he's going to use NotePad/Command Prompt in initial stage. :)

    I am confused at this part.

    If you see a New button and not a Set button:

    * Click New.
    * In the Name field, type PATH.
    * In the Value field, type the following (where you should use replace "j2sdk1.4.1_01" with whatever directory name is correct for your installation of java):

    %path%;c:\j2sdk1.4.1_01\bin

    * Click OK to complete that variable.
    * Click in the User variables window.
    * Click New and create a variable named CLASSPATH with the following value:

    %classpath%;.

    * Click OK to complete that variable.
    * Exit all windows and programs, especially any command prompt window. Try the java and javac commands again to see if they work now. If they do not, restart your computer and try the java and javac commands again.

    Why are you confused there? Can't see those buttons. Here is the way in Windows XP.

    Go to the control button. You can see an icon called System on classic view of control panel. Double click on it. You have System Properties dialog. Go to the Advanced tab. Click the Environment Variables button. There you can see two groups, User variables and System Variables You can do what that page explain. There you can see New button. Don't worry about the Set button.

    Hope it's clear now.
