You can install Eclipse on your computer in order to work on assignments and labs.

First, get the Java Development Kit (JDK):

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

Click on the Download JDK button. Once the download has completed, install the JDK. (On Windows, the installer is an executable file which you can run.)

Then, download Eclipse:

http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/

Get the "Eclipse IDE for Java Developers". The download is an archive file. Just extract it somewhere, and run the eclipse.exe executable to start Eclipse.
