Chapter 36. Introduction to Java > What's New in Java?

What's New in Java?

To write Java you need an editor, a Java compiler, and a Java Runtime Environment. The easiest way to get a Java compiler and runtime environment is to download Sun's Java Development Kit (JDK). The JDK also includes a variety of tools—it's a "must-have" item for any Java developer. (You'll have to supply your own text editor.)

Tip

After you've learned Java, you may want to look at some of the Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) being offered by Microsoft, Symantec, and others. These environments typically enable you to write Java faster, although not all of them give you access to the latest Java features.
