    I'm planning on learning java, what all do I need to get started? I have J2SE 1.4.2 and a book, it's Java2 The Complete Reference (fifth edition), but what else do I need :confused:

    The 'simplest' development environment would be the command line and your text editor of choice. However there are also other things out there you can use. I have never tried BlueJ so I cannot say how good it is, but it is geared towards learning java. Here's the link:

    This isn't a very good forum asking learning Java questions in. You should look for a java specific forum. There will be more people there who can answer your questions better.
