Yes, it is free. Look in our FAQ, and it tells you which website to find it on. Don't use NetBeans if you are a beginner; get a decent editor, eg Notepad++ and use the command line.

Well why not try downloading it and if no one asks you for money before you can download it then it's free.

Does this really qualify as an Intermediate level question?

Thanks for the answers.
I am not a beginer, but just worried due to current web laws.
I knew that it is not a intermediate level question.
I thought I may not get proper answer if I ask a beginer.

Never mind madhu...
But make sure you have tried yourself best but couldn't get it. Nowadays google has made everything handy.

To make you more confused, yes you do not have to pay anything for Sun JDK 6 but it is not free software in the sense of the Free Software Foundation (where "free" means "freedom" and not necessarily "costs no money").

It will be in the future, as Sun is busy making their Java implementation open source (OpenJDK).
