Lost One, First things first. Welcome to Javaranch. Now I consider this to be the best place to learn Java but while doing so, you must abide by about the only rule we have. And that is the Naming Policy. You can change your display name here Now, with that out of the way, as Siva suggestion, http://java.sun.com is the best place to begin online. Specifically the Java Tutorial. Also, I would highly recommend picking up a copy of Head First Java. You can read a great review of this book here. Hope that helps and we look forward to helping you on your journey from "Lost" to, well, wherever you want to go.
If you are experienced in other programming languages like C++, Smalltalk; "Core Java-Volume1" is a good introduction for learning Java. It is well thought out and comes from Sun. This is used by many so called authors of different java books when they started learning Java. Dan.
I see the Java Language Specification and Java Tutorial,both from Sun Micro Systems very useful for... 1.Clearing ur concepts 2.SCPJ certification also Secondly you should know the logics and catches in a program.Forums are the best and i find Java Ranch forum is very friendly and the people watching and replying very knowledgeable. As far as the books are concerned each has his own choice based their knowledge levels. As a beginner you may start with the above information from SUN .They be downloaded freely. What else u need ?? Well begun is half done ...U know !!! Bye & all the best
