This is quite a simple one, how did you start to learn java? and how did you get where you are today? what advice would you give to a greenhorn just starting out in java?

First, learn by yourself with the basic book like Head First Java, and do the coding on your own.

If you search, you find threads like this one and this one.
Those might help your question.

Oh, whenever I go to a concert hall it is a case of "how much do the tickets cost?"

I taught myself and I am now a pretty good programmer. I did both the Head First and Murach java books (and both JSP books), and the Joshua Bloch's book for background in more advanced topics. I also have some other specialised books on java and xml and ajax books and while useful less useful than the others. I also uses the forums, particularl javaranch, which have been invaluable.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
