I am new to java and was wondering if there are any good editors that you all may have used. I did a search on google and it returned many programs. I do have Visual Java from Microsoft but I am having a time trying to learn it. Open for suggestions...
Should I stick with visual java or get a java editor that may be easier for me to use?

I hate to rain on your parade but there is no product called Visual Java from Microsoft. If you mean Visual J++ which was an attempt by Microsoft to hijack the language by making sure that the code you wrote only worked on a microsoft JVM, then yes you should change to the latest JDK and use an editor like JEdit to learn java. Microsoft no longer actively support Visual J++ as far as I'm aware. If you mean Visual J# well this is definately not Java. There are plenty of discussions about the Microsoft vs Sun court case that arose due to Visual J++ just do a search to find out more information.
