Welcome to JavaRanch!

There are essentially unlimited Java learning resources, including some listed in our own pages:

http://faq.javaranch.com/java/HereYouWillFindLinksToFreeStuff

The Oracle tutorials start here:

For iPhone-related questions, please use our iPhone forum. The Apple iOS developer pages are a good place to start. And you'll want to learn Objective-C.

I'm consistently disappointed with the quality and content of roseindia tutorials; I recommend against it.

I agree with David. A couple of years ago,I had posted a comment on roseindia about the poor quality of code (a class extending JFrame AND instantiating a separate, method-local JFrame) and till about six moths later, they hadn't corrected the gaffe.

If you want to learn to code correctly, that site is best avoided. There are a lot of decent example codes on java2s.com

Too laconic. Moves too quickly. Some minor errors, eg "reserved words" over the table of keywords, but that table doesn't contain "true" "false" and "null" which are reserved non-key-words.
