    When starting out, you need to become familiar with using command-line Java, so you know the basic operation of setting up, writing, compiling, and running Java. Any simple editor will do for writing the code - notepad, TextPad, etc. Once you are familiar with the basics, you can migrate to an IDE (Integrated Development Environment), which will do a lot of the low-level work for you, check your code for syntax errors, compile & run code for you, and allow you to debug your code. If you try to start using an IDE without first becoming familiar with command-line Java, you'll find yourself lost and confused if the IDE doesn't do what you expect at some point.

    Good free IDEs for Java development are JCreator, BlueJ, Eclipse, Netbeans, and IntelliJ IDEA. They're all free, and generally look similar, but have their own styles of project organisation. Each takes time to learn how to use, so once you know how to use command-line Java, have a play with them and see which one you find most comfortable.

    Welcome to the forums seicair.

    I would suggest starting here - Trail: Getting Started (The Java™ Tutorials)

    I personally use the Eclipse IDE. If you want to have a play with it, follow this tutorial - http://www.javaprogrammingforums.com...plication.html
