I've only gotten through a semester of beginner Java & that was a couple years ago.
For medical reasons I haven't been able to pursue it further, until now.
Anyways...

My question.

In classes we had to download Eclipse, Netbeans, JDK, & JRE

Is this still all I need?

Also, when i go to download eclipse, the downloads are entirely different than before.
Could someone lead me to the right ones pls?

All you need is the following:

Eclipse IDE - Tell me about your computer, the OS and if 64-bit/32-bit that's, if you know it yourself choose Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers.

JDK (Java Development Kit) - Latest version
Java - latest version (you probably already have).

You can find some youtube videos online if needed if you're having troubles with eclipse. Common errors include already existing older versions of JDK on the computer or multiple versions.

Good luck!

In my opinion, just my opinion out of the 2 IDEs you mentioned I would use NetBeans.

Use this link here and it will come with the JRE: http://download.netbeans.org/netbeans/8....indows.exe

It's all preference. I personally think Netbeans is ugly but hey you might like it.

For beginners, I suggest using Dr.Java. Then move on to dedicated IDE for more complex programs, like IntelliJ IDEA. All you need is the JDK. You can use any notepad to code, and terminal to compile.
