    Default java books

    I am looking for a good beginning JAVA book. I have programmed AS400 Cobol for 4 years about 4 years ago. I am not new to programming, just JAVA.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    BOB

    Hey Bob!
    Perhaps you would want to check Javanotes by David Eck. Here is the linked PDF version.

    They won't let me post links...

    Would check out O'Reilly "Learning Java" or, if you have a reasonable amount of programming experience, just go straight for "Java in a Nutshell" -- the first few chapters give a round-up of the Java language, assuming a little prior programming knowledge.

    If you go for a typical "beginning Java" book, you may find that you spend 16 chapters learning what an array is.
