Not sure what to download to start
What do I need to download for Java programming?"
What do I need to download from sun to start programming in Java? I am not sure which link from the Sun site.
Any other hints or advice? I have booked marked some tutorials but any others would be appreciated.
woh you are really new. First you need a compiler. BlueJ has a nice and simple interface, d/l that from Sun. You'll also have to d/l the java sdk. Nest, find a book on java. Take a look at "Java by Example". You can view it for free here.
Java by Example
