Dear Daniweb members.. Am on ma way to learn java. I hav bit knowledge about c,c++. Since am new to java, I need help for the following questions:

1. Where can i get the java software? (like turbo c++ for cpp)I need a link for it. I heard that it needs 2 things. One is compiler and the other is interpreter.

2. How to install it to my computer?

3. Any good tutorials for Java for beginners like me? I have bought Herbert Schildt book.

Thanks in advance.
