First of all, welcome to the world of JAVA !!

For JDBC, also the best resource is

If to expand to Java World from Oracle World, I would start to play with EJB. The best resource for it is "Mastering Enterprise Java Beans" by Ed Roman. The book also can be found on-line.

you decide where you fit in. You have oracle knowlege. you check oracle 8i & its support fo java. how it supports jdbc ? how you can most of your knowledge ?
do you know the basic java ? if not then you have to start with that? then you can go for jsp , servlets , jdbc stuff.
for mastering ejb books , you have to go to site & register there. then , you can download that book. it is about 8 mb & not printable.
i hope this is helpful.
