    Then why not start with The Java Tutorials?
    http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/
    >
    The Java Tutorials are practical guides for programmers who want to use the Java programming language to create applications. They include hundreds of complete, working examples, and dozens of lessons. Groups of related lessons are organized into "trails".
    >
    There are tutorials with example code that cover all of the major areas. You can work at your own pace, slow or fast.
  • There are many online resources and books available to start with java leaning, among them the one i used when i started learning java is the Head First Java book by Kathy Sierra , below is the link for the book

    http://www.amazon.com/Head-First-Java-Kathy-Sierra/dp/0596009208/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1344808748&sr=8-1&keywords=head+first+java

    You can look at the www.javaranch.com community which is dedicated for java code ranchers.....

    A very good book, if you like to learn through puzzles and games. I could understand it if you want something a little less playful - the Amazon user reviews are a good indication which books people like and which they do not.

    I always suggest reading a good book. I think if you put out good money to buy a book, you are more likely to read it from cover to cover to get your money's worth. You can also use it's index to refresh your memory on some topic you previously read when you are coding. Work though a lot of the book's examples. First on the command line until you're familiar with that, then install an IDE such as Eclipse when you're ready to work through the rest of the examples.
