    Cool JDK?

    I am learning Java and I was wondering because when I'm alot more experienced I want to create a IDE sort of thing for Java. I'm not sure if this is the right forum for my question but I've searched alot and I can't find if your allowed to use the JDK in a project? Like are you allowed to have a IDE that uses the Java JDK?

    What do you mean, "allowed to have a(n) IDE that uses the Java JDK?" Are you talking licensing? A paid app or open source? Need more info, but we're not lawyers.
