You do not need to install an IDE such as intellij, eclipse or netbeans to program in Java. However, you do require the Java Software Development Kit (SDK) to compile your code and a text editor in which to write it. An IDE is nice if you have a system powerful enough to run one. Without knowing what the specification of your system is it's hard to be any more specific. You can start learning Java here on SoloLearn without installing anything on your system. You can write small practice programs in the code playground.


JDK is only required thing.
