If you have serious aspirations, I suggest these books, the first two
right away, adding the others as time goes on.

- Head First Java (O'Reilly) for learning Java; it's a lot of fun as are
all the Head First books.

- Thinking in Java (Bruce Eckel: this is your "grammar" or reference
work--the book you look stuff up in when you have formal questions)

- Effective Java (Joshua Bloch, considered the bible of Java programming
practice)

- Java Concurrency in Practice ( Brian Goetz, great help if you're
called on to work in code that's multithreading-critical)


Anything else you need can mostly be acquired on the web, I mostly
believe in not buying books as they go out of date, but these above are
special. I would also suggest:

- Head First Design Patterns (O'Reilly: Design patterns are a pretty
fundamental topic in object-oriented programming today, this book is
huge fun to read)

Last, Google is your friend. The best Java-oriented programming forums
are javaranch.com, jguru.com, stackoverflow.com and this one for Eclipse
(not Java) questions.

Best of luck. Java rules! Eclipse rocks absolutely! Come back here for help.

P.S. I do NOT get any consideration for anything I've said here. This is
my opinion as a old C/assembly guy (for 25+ years) who made the long,
arduous and painful climb to Java/JEE beginning 7 years ago.
