Now, as per your query, I would recommend the Java: "A Beginner's Guide" or, "Java: The Complete Reference" by Hebert Schildt. For later studies, its best if you start Googling your queries, and we at JavaRanch are certainly here to help. Hope this helps.
Head First Java...in fact the complete series is awesome...if you are a beginner...no way you can get better book than it.
Regarding database "Korth" is considered as Bible. However, it will be a bit cumbersome, if you are a beginner. Look for the DB in which you want to work. Go for their official manuals.. enjoy coding
