Dear programmers, after installing jdk and configuring it in my system, what should I do next ?
Re: Please Help A Newbie With Java. by Karleb(m): 8:45am On Sep 16
Install an IDE, I'll recommend NetBeans.

Google how to run your first Java program on it or you could try to do it instinctively.

...and follow a tutorial.

I said an IDE because I find it easy to run code on it.

Install Eclipse and get some good tutorials from YouTube.

OP look at the first 3 comments. That's what I started with. 1. NetBeans 2. Eclipse 3.IntelliJ IDEA but as a beginner you should not start with IDE, rather I would tell you to start with notepad or note++ and run your code in the command line. That way you will understand how JVM work and how you can debug your code without IDE.

Don't get it wrong. I said for a beginner who wants to start Java s/he must have that knowledge of running code from the command line. Even if it is just a day or two. Everybody uses IDE these days.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to my thread so far. I found them(your contributions) very helpful. I guess I'll just have to think about it a bit and then decide whether to go for notepad/note++ or IDE.

O boy, I'm still a hardcore shell user, even when I switched from termux to using a laptop, I still went back to the shell because I realised that when you compile and write makefiles by hand you get to know what and how everything is happening, that's why I prefer to use the shell.
