Help with Java

I'm new to Java and I've been trying to find a good beginning tutorial that actually explains Java with code examples. I've visted java.sun quite often but for example if I want to know what a method is I have to read about a bike and a bike's parts. This is not what I need. I need code examples for example that say something like

Here is a method - public void exampleLearning(LearningJava lj)

public means -- blah blah blah

void means -- blah blah blah and you can also use blah blah and this means blah blah

exampleLearning is - blah blah

Why can't a tutorial go into detail instead of giving me world examples? I don't need world examples I need code examples to really learn the language. Can somebody direct me to a tutorial online or a good book that goes into detail about a class, a method, a variable and so on?

Thank You

Hi Jason,
I personally feel, you should by a book like Java Complete Reference, Core Java 1 & 2.
If you are looking for online stuff, why don't you download this book from Bruce Thinking in Java 3, Have a nice day...

SCJP 1.4, SCMAD 1.0<br />SCWCD, SCBCD (in progress)
