Complete process of Java Application Development

In this post we will learn how to develop Java application. Before developing java application, you need to set up the basic environment like how to download the JDK, how to use the IDE?
Steps to set up the environment:

  1. Download the latest version of JDK from the Oracle site. Install the JDK on your computer. After install the JDK, you can check whether it has been successfully installed in your computer or not by using command prompt. You just have to type “java -version” in command prompt, it will tell you some information about the java installed on your computer as shown in the following picture:
  2. The next task is to setup the path of java. There are two ways to setup the java path:
    1. Temporary: Go to Command Prompt and copy the path of JDK bin to the set path as shown in the below picture:
    2. Permanent: You can follow this tutorial.
  3. The next thing is to have IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for writing the java code. The two most popular editor used are: 
    1. Notepad
    2. Eclipse
I used to prefer Eclipse. You can download the latest version of Eclipse and start developing java applications.
