Welcome to JavaRanch.

Well, if you have the Java JDK, then you already have the compile ran dthe runtime components, and don't need anything else. Once you have mastered the basics you may want to switch to an IDE like Eclipse or NetBeans, but I would advise to wait a while until you do that.

One widely praised free book on Java is Thinking In Java, the 3rd edition of which can be downloaded.

By the way, please refrain from posting in bold letters. It does not make you rpost stand out in any way, but it is annoying to read.
