Hi All,

I have recently started my preparation for SCJP. I want to know which applications needs to be installed so that i can do programming in java.

As per my knowledge i need jdk1.6 and editplus.
please correct me if i am wrong.

I also want to know do i need to do any particular settings in my computer to run java programs. I think i have to edit environment variable, not sure though.

Please help.

Best Regards<br />Tusshar Shah

if you have installed editplus, then you have to follow this steps to give the path of your jdk.1.6:-
1. Click on the tools and select preferences
2. Click Add Tools button and select program. Give Program name in Menu text(ex: compile).
3. In Command Field select the path of the compiler(Ex:C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_05\bin\javac.exe).
4. In Arguments field click on file name.
5.In Initial Directory field click on file directory.
6.mark options capture output and save open file and select apply.
7.repeat step 2 for adding a new program .(ex: Run)
8.then repeat step 3.(ex: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_05\bin\java.exe). here we select java.exe, not javac.exe.
9.In Arguments field click on file name without extension.
10.repeat step 5 and 6.
11. select View from main option and mark on user toolbar.
12. Ctr+1 for compilation and ctr+2 for running .

now you can run and compile the programs
