Thats not a compiler, thats an IDE.

To actually build things using it you need to download the sun JDK (Java Development Kit) and of course the JRE (which you probably have already)

Yerp. Personally i say to download the JDK and then NetBeans - make sure to download the (smaller) version of NetBeans that only includes JavaSE.

how do i compile java using netbeans ide and notepad++

Tested in my Vista Ultimate 32 bit. Download jdk (75mb)from this site http://download.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/getStarted/cupojava/win32.html .Install it, open command prompt ,type javac filename.java to compile and type java filename to run your java program.Use notepad to write java files. Select the installation folder in command prompt.If u install jdk to c/program files, then reach that folder in command prompt. eg:- C:\Program Files\Java\jdk\bin>javac filename.java .So you have to copy the notepad file to the installed folder bin. For any doubts, ask me. --usama
