    I'd also recommend Java Head First, simple and easy to learn from.

    But if you are looking for something more comprehensive try "Ivor Hortings Beginning Java [lastet version here]".

    I normally go for the books written by the creator(s) of the language; that is: "The C Programming Language 2nd ed" by Kernighan and Ritchie, "The C++ Programming Language 3rd ed" by Bjarne Stroustrup and "The Java Programming Language 3rd ed" () by James Gosling et. al.

    kind regards,

    Jos

    () Not sure if a 4th edition already exists.

    Hi,

    I have recommended this book in the past and will recommend it again. It's very useful and you will learn a lot from it.

    'Introduction to Java Programming by Y. Daniel Liang, 2009, (1327 pages) 7th edition, Pearson International Edition', ISBN 10: 0-13-605966-X. The book has a companion website (Pearson - Liang) where you can view tutorial videos.

    Hi,

    This is the link to the website for the Java book.
    Liang

    There are quite a few books on that site. But get the latest version.

    I think you can buy Learning Java by Jonathan Knudsen, Patrick Niemeyer.
    RAQ Report: free Java reporting tool.

    Introduction to Java Programming by Y. Daniel Lang. ( Comprehensive version)

    Well explained, cover a lot of Java Programming( 1700+ pages of fun), and at the end of each chapter there is a decent amount of programming exercises.

    Go to gigapedia.org to review the book.

    A very good book asuming you have no knowledge of programming but explains everything up to polymorphism is java for students.
    strongly recommend it
