From what I understand all I need to develop and run java programs is the JDK right? Since the JDK has the java command to run the program correct? Or do I need to install the JRE in addition?

Thanks

Sun's JDKs include a JRE. They have to, as most of the tools (the compiler, for example) are themselves written in Java.
