Hi Amit,
Visual Age is an IDE taht you can use for Java development. Its an IBM product and I think you have an evaluation version for download.
You also have other IDE's like
- Forte from Sun
- PowerJ from Sybase
- JBuilder from Inprise
- JDeveloper from Oracle
- Together from Togethersoft
For simpler IDE's you can download Textpad from http://www.textpad.com and start coding. You can even compile and run ur applications.
Hope this helps.
Thanks,
Tom

Hi Amit,
To add to what Tom Keith said -- what differentiates Visual Age for Java from other IDEs is that there is an inbuilt websphere test environment inside this IDE. Thus you can deploy your J2EE applications in this IDE and later move them over websphere ( app server from IBM ) or any other J2EE compliant application server.

Amit, One question -- why do you want VisualAge for Java? The reason I ask is that the product is being phased out in favor of IBM's new IDE, WebSphere Studio. Are you looking to work through examples from a book, or are you just looking for a good IDE? What kind of programming will you want to do?
