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.
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).
