Where can I find info on Java standards on programming styles, practices and recommended architecture?

There's lots of them. Here are some books I like to refer to for best practices and style:
"Effective Java" by Joshua Bloch
"Practical Java" by Peter Haggar
"Java Elements of Style" by Scott Ambler, et.al.
"Java 2 Performance and Idioms" by Craig Larman
"Java Pitfalls" by Michael Daconta

Good list. Check out "Effective Java" in particular. For style, see also Sun's standard code conventions here.
