Sun's tutorials are a great place to start.

One coat of readup of Sun's tutorials just mentioned, and a second coating of Thinking in Java will be perfect! All the best.

When confronted with a new API I often google for "java something tutorial" and almost always get a hit at Sun and a few others from university courses. Do you have particular areas you want to study? Or just a running start at the language? Thinking In Java referenced above is very readable. The "Head First" books are good, too, and some of the authors hang out here.


A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi

Yeah, Thinking in Java was my main text for learning Java. Here's an online HTML version. It can also be downloaded from Bruce Eckel's site. (Eckel is the author.)

Of course, you can also purchase the physical book. (A 4th edition is due in February, and I'm anxious to buy a copy.)
