This site.
But when I stucked on something, I just use google.

But I have a list of recommended site I've jot down from Java 2 dummies.
I've not visit all of them but I think it will be helpful to post here.

P.S. I'm not sure is it legal or not,
If it is illegal, please feel free to delete my reply.

Definitely this one. Years ago, I used Sun's Developer Forums, but I found their community to be neither helpful nor friendly.

My Java guru is Bruce Eckel, so I often reference his online book, Thinking in Java. (A hardcopy of this book was my primary text for learning Java.)

Of course, there's the indispensable Java API. If I'm nitpicking, I might check the Java Language Specs.

I don't use Google (-insert collective gasps of astonishment-). Instead, I use Metacrawler, which uses Google in conjunction with other engines. When searching for Java information, this usually brings me back here to JavaRanch or to JavaWorld.

When I started in Java, I found Sun's tutorials to be helpful. And in preparing for the SCJP exam, I used Dan Chisholm's practice exams.
