I would like to start studying for SCJP, i don't like just using the javac compiler @ my school.
So any simple compiler and development tools which is easy and small to use?

Wellcome to Ranch of Java. (maybe the best forum in the net for SCJP)
Please change your displayed name according our unique rule:name policy
For the exam you won't need any tool apart from the compiler and a text editor.

If you're getting ready for the exam, I'd try getting used to using javac. That's the standard compiler that comes with JDK 1.2, which is what the exam covers.
After you're certified, you might try out some IDE's or new compilers. I hear that IBM has a compiler that goes by the name of Jikes that is really nice.
However, in order to study for the exam, I'd stick with javac. That'll set you up the best for taking the exam.

Thanks for prompt reply. So any recommendation for the compiler in window environment?

If you insist on using an IDE, JCreator is a nice, full-featured, small, and fast (as it is written in C+ not Java) IDE to use. Plus a free version is available.
Good Luck.
