New to Java
I'm a student at University of Kent UK. I'm completely new to java but I need to to an unaided project using it.
I'm on a home PC with no software, except I've downloaded and installed the jdk-1_5_0-windows-i586 off the sun site.
My question is....
How do i go about writing mt java, what do i write it in, what do i use to compile it, what can i run my java programs with. I was hoping I would understand it once installing the above file.
Lots of help would be greatly appreciated, like I said I'm a complete new comer to java, having only programmed in Basic at school.
