Want to learn Java

Am I best using Suns Version, or should I go for VJ++ or JBuilder?

I would just download the newest SDK from Sun's Web site that comes with the free Netbeans IDE.

J++ isn't real Java. Skip it and go with Sun's version.

I actually just use Visual Studio as my editor though.

you could use Visual Studio.net J#, it's more or less Java... but I do all my Java in this wonderful IDE, JPad

I would recommend just getting the sun jdk and get like a freeware ide such as eclipse, it's one that I've used, since switching from jbuilder, and seems to be one, more and more companies are using.
