  • INSTALLING THE JAVA SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT KIT
  • DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENTS
  • USING THE COMMAND LINE TOOLS
  • USING AN INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT
  • COMPILING AND RUNNING PROGRAMS FROM A TEXT EDITOR
  • GRAPHICAL APPLICATIONS
  • APPLETS

In this chapter, you will learn how to install the Java Software Development Kit (SDK) and how to compile and run various types of programs: console programs, graphical apps, and applets. You run the SDK tools by typing commands in a shell window. However, many programmers prefer the comfort of an integrated development environment. We show you how to use a freely available development environment to compile and run Java programs. While easier to learn and use, integrated development environments take a long time to load and require heavy resources. As a middle ground, you may want to use a text editor that can call the Java compiler and interpreter. We show you a couple of text editors with Java integration. Once you have mastered the techniques in this chapter and picked your development tools, you are ready to move on to , where you will begin exploring the Java coding language.
