    Java compiler

    I would like to learn Java. I figure I'll need a compiler. I found this warning on-line. "The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is urging computer users to disable Java software on their computers. An exploit for an unpatched vulnerability in Java is being used by cybercriminals to infect computers with malware." Etc. Etc.

    Is this on the level? If it is then it makes me wonder whether learning Java is worth the effort.

    Is it possible to buy a Java compiler on disk and avoid downloading altogether?

    In order to get a Java development environment set up on your machine -- you "develop" (write) computer programs using a "development environment" -- you will have to complete the following steps:

    Download a large file containing the Java development environment (the compiler and other tools).
    Download a large file containing the Java documentation.
    If you do not already have WinZip (or an equivalent) on your machine, you will need to download a large file containing WinZip and install it.
    Install the Java development environment.
    Install the documentation.
    Adjust several environment variables.
    Test everything out.
    Before getting started, it would make things easier if you create a new directory in your temp directory to hold the files we are about to download. We will call this the download directory
