Java SDK

Of course you'll also need a Java JDK/SDK. (Developers kits used to be referred to as JDK's - Java Developer's Kits, but more recently they are term SDK's - Software Developer Kits.) If you don't have one installed on your system already, you can download one from http://java.sun.com.

Caution: Be sure you get the JDK or SDK, and specifically DO NOT get something named the JRE, because the JRE will not let you compile the code. "JRE" stands for Java Runtime Environment, and is fine for running Java programs, but won't let you compile programs at all.
