Umm...I've tried two java editors on my computer and I'm getting the same installation "error" (not really an error, but whatever). I tried Sun's SunOne Studio and it asked me for the "J2SDK home"...saying that I didn't have one and I needed one in order to solve the files. Likewise, when I attempted to install BLueJ it said a "...JDK/J2SDK must be installed to run BlueJ..."

How do I install this thing?

download the sdk, not the jre

Also, try eclipse. I heard it is one of the better java editors (Used by IBM employess). It is also open source.

I downloaded it. It seems better. I'm not that familiar with java in general yet. When I use java in the computer lab they have use SunOne and I've been using 'empty classes' so far...how do I make those in Eclipse?

download the sdk, not the jre
I'm assuming the: J2EE(TM) SDK 1.4 Developer Release

If so...once I download this, what 'Installation Directory" do I put it in? The default one already in the textbox is C:\Sun\AppServer...is this right?
