There are some prerequisites to start java programming. Make sure have these following things.
- Software to write JAVA program
- Java runtime 1.5 or above
For the first one I would recommend Dr.Java as I am much familiar with it because it’s used in my University. You can find out Dr.Java in Dr.java.org . You cannot run Dr.Java if you do not have java runtime 1.5 or above installed in you machine. To install java in your computer follow the next step.
For the second one go here. then, click download beside JDK 6 Update 24 with Java EE. on the next page select your desktop platform. Make sure you select x86 if you have a 32-bit operating system. after selecting you will be redirected to the download site. There you click download beneath Java EE 6 SDK Update 2 (with JDK 6 U24) your download will start shortly. Install JDK 6 and then you will be able to start your programing.
Happy Programming… 🙂
