In this article we are going to discuss about running and installing first time in your machine, We will know how to download and install Java JDK and it’s famous IntelliJ IDEA for writing the java code.
Java is a programming language owned and distributed by Oracle, but you can use it for free! You need to download and install the JDK or “Java Development Kit”.
If you click on that button it should take you to a page with the current list of Java downloads.
First you’ll need to click the “Accept License Agreement” radio button, then you can select the download that best fits your machine.
This should launch the JDK installer diaglog. It will ask you some questions, but you can just repeatedly click “next” as the default options should work fine for most developers.
There are a number of different editors you can use to write your Java code. For this course we will use IntelliJ IDEA, a free program created and distributed by JetBrains. You are welcome to use any program you prefer.
This should launch the intelliJ installer. You should be able to click “next” as all the default setting should work fine for most developers.
This should take you to the Create new Project prompt.
Since this is the first time you will be writing Java with IntelliJ you need to configure IntelliJ to know where the JDK you previously downloaded is on your machine. Click the “New…” button next to the drop down and select the location of the JDK on your machine.
Now you should be able to finish clicking through the rest of the create new project dialog!
