Is this your first programming language or do you know other languages already? I think a good starting point would be the tutorials right on Sun's site: http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/ The "Getting Started" one will guide you through downloading, installing and writing your first program. After that, work your way through all of the topics in Trails Covering the Basics. If your well versed in other languages, you might not need the "language basics" or "numbers and strings" sections. Unless you've been working with and object oriented language already, I would suggest carefully studying the Object Oriented Programming Concepts and the Classes and Objects sections as that is where a lot of java's power lies. Best of luck with the studying. :)

If you are learning C++ and have a good grasp of it, you will probably pick up java easily. The way of thinking and working with classes, objects, etc is the same. The syntax differs, but that's not so hard to get used to.

Java by far is not one of the more complicated languages to start programming wight, especially when compared a language like C++. I started programming with Java and basically got a book on Java, read the details and examples, and started practicing. I surprised myself on how much i could do in such a short period of time. Getting g help form the most obvious places is many times overlooked. You should check out some of the DUMMY books that are available at your library or some of the tutorials that are offered online. SO many to choose from.

The easiest way to learn java and any other programming language is to share a lot of programming skills with your friends. And if you want some beginning start then you can refer some of the books like Balagursamy Java, or any other writers java book.
