Starting Java

Hello,
My friend and I are trying to start Java. We have books and all the resources that we need. However we are confused on how to get programs to run. Can someone please tell us about the SDK and JRE packages from java.sun.com . We have JCreator from JCreator.com . Can someone please give more information?

If i were you i'd go here (http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/getStarted/cupojava/win32.html) for instructions on installation and getting started
go here (http://java.sun.com/webapps/download/Display
this is Java 2 SDK (1.4.1_02)) to download Java 2 SDK 1.4.1

if something is unclear during installation or configuration, just let us know...

The JRE (Java Runtime Environment) contains the Virtual Machine (VM) and necessary libarary files to run Java programs.

The SDK (Software Development Kit) contains the JRE, as well as tools needed to build Java programs.

If you only wants to run Java programs, you only need the JRE. If you want to build and run Java programs, then you would need the SDK.

oh, I assumed you are using a Windows OS, if not i'll give you the links for other OS.

and about the JRE & SDK confusion:

JRE is Java Runtime Environment, basically to run the programs
SDK is Software Development Kit, with this you can develop programs AND run them
