  2. NetBeans (https://netbeans.org)

    Just like the previous program, this open-source IDE is one of the most recommended Java programming environments for beginners. It is also fast and powerful that can support all Java platforms from Standard Edition (SE) to FX.

  3. BlueJ (http://bluej.org/)

    BlueJ is described to have the simplest IDE interface and specifically designed to help a novice user understand the fundamental concepts of Java programming.

  4. DrJava (www.drjava.org)

    DrJava was also designed for amateur programmers who want a simple interface. Despite its simplicity, it is still powerful enough for proficient Java programmers.

  5. Java Development Kit (JDK)

    The Java Development Kit is a tool that acts as both a compiler and an interpreter.

The latest JDK version can be downloaded from Oracle’s website – www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html. Ensure that you download the appropriate version for your computer. If you are using a 32-bit operating system, then download the matching file name affixed with x86. Otherwise, if it is a 64-bit operating system, then download the one with x64.
