Basic Setup - Installing the Java tools for the tutorials

Why do we need this tutorial?

If you haven’t used Java, a Java IDE or Gradle before, this tutorial will help you getting started with the 3 main tools we use for most of the tutorials and courses that we offer in our JCoder website.

Feel free to skip sections of this tutorial if you’re already familiar with a specific topic.

If you already have Java, an IDE and know how to import Gradle projects into your IDE, then you might skip this tutorial completely.

We’ll cover:

  1. How to install Java and check it was installed properly

  2. Options of IDEs we suggest

  3. Basics of Gradle projects and how to import them into Eclipse/IntelliJ
