That's 3 different questions...
First - to write Java all you need is an editor. kwrite has been
suggested elsewhere. vim and emacs are also decent editors, and
emacs is a little friendlier to people who don't know it at all.
There are IDE solutions, which others have talked about. To
compile Java you need a JDK (Java Developper's (or developpment)
Kit) - there are many of these, among whick, Sun's own JDK, IBM's
JDK, the Blackdown port of the JDK, and kaffe (another free JDK
To run Java porgrams, you need a Java Runtime Environment. This
usually comes with the JDK. But if you're using gjc (the GNU
Java compiler) I don't think you get the runtime files at all.
And that's it.
