Comment Java Tutorials on Sun (Score 1) 558 You really only need the JDK. I'd get "JDK 6 Update 7 with Java EE" at and also the javadoc distribution. Start with that and a good IDE like Netbeans or Eclipse. I'd actually recommend Netbeans although I use Eclipse myself; Netbeans should be easier to get started with and seems to be a little less quirky. Some of Sun's tutorials have code that are already Netbeans projects. Go through basics first like understanding the langauge (e.g. differences/similarities w/ languages you know) before worrying about stuff like Swing (UI), or anything J2EE-related- you'll get there eventually.

Be careful when a loop exits to the same place from side and bottom.
