Hello everyone,
I would like to install Eclipse IDE in my local machine. Could any one let me know the step by step procedure to install the JDK? Is there any difference in the JDK versions to run the servlets, JSP, Struts,Hibernate, Spring, Web services?

Thanks,
bobby

You can download the JDK from Sun's Java SE download page. There are also links to installation instructions on that page.

Sun's Java SE download page has several downloads:JDK 6 Update 6 and JDK 6 Update 6 with Java EE.Of these which one shall I download in order to execute sample core java and advance java programs?

Thanks,
bobby

If you are a beginner, JDK 6 update 6.
Make sure to read the bit about setting the PATH in the installation instructions. You will almost certainly want the "permanent" setting.

Bobby,

Java SE (Standard Edition) is what you need for "sample core java" as you said.

However, for the technologies you mentioned in your first message, like JSP, web services, and others, you might want to download Java EE (Enterprise Edition).

I would suggest you to take a moment to read the pages at Sun's Java website so you know the difference among the editions and versions of Java.
