I need a Simple Java Compiler. Do you know any good ones?

I would love to have a simple java compiler that works just as simple as the TreeHouse workspace compiler.

I downloaded BlueJ but I did not see the option to setup the .java only the .class. Please let me know where in the software I need to go to set this up or if you can please recommend another similar program.

GCJ which is the Java branch of the GNU C Compiler is what you are looking for:
