There are just too many of them. However, I find java.sun.com tutorials to be most concise if you already are familiar with programming. Otherwise, use a book such as "Head First Java"

Sorry -- what I meant was tutorials focusing on the new featues exclusive to java 6.

It looks like http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/ covers everything in Java 6. It looks like it would be difficult to fish out the new stuff from that page.

The documentation for each JDK release has a page with an overview of the changes; the one for JDK 6 is here.
