Hi Boyce, welcome to the Ranch!

When I did a web search for the keywords java sdk download, this was the first link I got back: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

Let us know if you run into any problems with that page.

Note that there's a bit of confusion regarding the version numbers. The "2" in "Java 2 Standard Edition" (J2SE) was dropped since Java version 6.

You'll want to use the latest version, which is Java 7. Download the JDK (Java Development Kit) for Java 7 on Oracle's Java SE download page.

There are updates regularly; at the time of writing this the latest version is Java 7 update 25.
