Eclipse does not need instalation. You can run it from a pen drive, for example. The biggest problem is the JDK.

You shouldn't be working on the assignment on company time anyway Or if the company lets you, they should also provide you with the (option to install) necessary tools.
Of course you can use any editor you want. There's no requirement to use any specific tool (yet, the way Sun is moving I'd not be surprised if they make use of Netbeans mandatory at some point).

Hi khaled, Since you are working on .NET platform and if you want to learn java in a short period , it is better to go for Any IDE , like Eclipse or NetBeans.
If you have sufficient time and want to learn the subject , a little slow , then you can go for any text editor . if possible , prefer editplus.

I finished my SCJD assignment within 17 days (download to upload). I used only vim as an editor, the Sun SDK (was called "SDK" back then) and GNU make. The GNU make was because of a very slow CPU and very little RAM - ant was far too slow on that system.
I got 96 % of the maximum score. Here is my report.
