Eclipse is NOT a compiler it is an IDE
Java compiler can be download from Sun... SDK (Sun Development Kit)
http://java.sun.com/...loads/index.jsp
there is no reason to download a compiler from anywhere else

Yes it is an Object oriented language.

The JRE is the runtime environment, and is required to run Java programs
The JDK is the development kit, and is what you will actually be using to compile the programs

OOP is not a piece of software, it is a programming concept. It is an acronym for Object Oriented Programming

Now that you have an SDK installed, you can utilize a Java IDE to aid in your programming endeavors. I personally enjoy NetBeans. During the netbeans installation, it should automatically detect that you have an SDK installed and will leverage it from there.

Java is OOP nothing else to download
Check where your /java/bin directory is... probably under /Program Files/Jave or /Program Files(X86)/Java
put that directory into your PATH variable
the go into the directory where your Java program is and at the console prompt:
> javac MyClass.java
> java MyClass

** Renamed title to be more descriptive of question **

I 2nd pbl's suggestion. Downloading the tools (compiler) from the people who wrote the language... regardless of what your definition of good is, you can't get any better than that.

I actually started with an IDE, rather than command line.

But I agree with the idea of it being better to learn by coding everything by hand rather than auto-generated stuff from an IDE.

In your other thread, we explained to you that OOP is a programming concept, not a downloadable piece of software.

I posted this link before, but you must not have read it: http://java.sun.com/.../java/concepts/

Also, when starting out, the best thing to do is just use a text editor and the command line, so that you don't rely on code completion and other features of IDEs

There is not such a thing as the "OOP part of Java" Java is OOP you have nothing else to download
As far as IDE is concerned, if you are new to programming just use Notepad that way you will learn
