Java Programming Setup

Programming in Java is a simple process, once you correctly set up your environment. There are three things you need to have to create and run Java Programs:

  1. The Java Development Kit (JDK)
  2. A Command Line Interface to compile and run the programs
  3. A Text Editor to write your program's source code
The setup process is similar for the PC and Mac - just follow the directions for the type of computer you have. Choose PC or Mac
