Dear Normally we use Notepad as an Editor to edit the JAVA Programs Although we can use more sophistacated Programs but that is not advisable for Beginers of Java. So I suggest you to do programming on Notepad first then move to any other editors.

The Java Tutorial is an excellent online recource. As for books, I recommend either Head First Java or Thinking in Java.
There is an online version of TIJ's 3rd edition, so you can see what it's like. You can also download a copy from the author's site. However, the new 4th edition of TIJ (covering Java 5.0) is only available in book form. [ April 10, 2006: Message edited by: marc weber ]
