Default Java Software

I have just purchased the book 'Beginning Java 2: SDK 1.4 Edition' by I Horton and the book suggests downloading the free java2 sdk from the sun web site. I have downloaded the software j2 sdk 1.4.2. When I install the software it asks for a user id and password.

Is this the correct version?, can anyone suggest where to download the free java software (so i can get started)

Regards

Mark

Hi,

The sun website has a tutorial called "First Cup of Java", which I have never been able to find once on the sun web site, but I can always locate it with google:

http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutor...ava/win32.html

It has a link to installation instructions. I just downloaded the exact same thing you did a few months ago, and I got the java compiler up and running following the installation instructions there. So, you should be on the right track. I use win98, so if you need to ask any specific questions about win98 installation, I'll try to answer them. Good luck.
