Requirements To write your first program, you'll need: The Java SE Development Kit – For Microsoft Windows, Solaris OS, and Linux: Java SE Downloads page Java SE Downloads page The NetBeans IDE – For all platforms: NetBeans IDE Downloads pageNetBeans IDE Downloads page
Creating a program A Java program is nothing more than a sequence of characters stored in a file with a.java extension You can use any text editor for this task, or you can use one of the more sophisticated program development environments
Compiling a program Programming languages are designed to be best understood by the programmer The computer’s language is far more primitive than Java A compiler is an application that translates a program from the Java language to a language more suitable for executing on the computer. The compiler takes a file with a.java extension as input (your program) and produces a file with the same name but with a.class extension (the computer-language version)
Executing a program Once you compile the program, you can run it Your computer follows your instructions A part of the Java system known as the Java Virtual Machine (the JVM) directs your computer to follow your instructions
