    I'm not a programmer but I did mess with java sometime back. I just did a little searching on the net and seems clear you have to get the developers jdk from sun for linux. Its free for Win so should be free for linux.

    Good Luck,

    I think it depends on which distribution, but in the majority of cases, there is a java compiler, it is provided by Blackdown.
    You should try:
    $ which java
    $ which javac
    $ echo $JAVA_HOME
    $ echo $CLASSPATH
    $ java -version


    If you have success with these, then you should be fine, otherwise you may want to download Sun's JDK - as indicated in the previous post.
