    Wow

    This is asked almost once a week. All the replies are the same people saying the same thing about the book they prefer and you cannot find any of them?

    I definitely recommend Just Java 2 :) And if you've never programmed object-oriented before then Java for Dummies first.

    I am a PHP coder and like you I got interested in Java a few years ago. I tried the "Java The Complete Reference (Seventh Edition)" and didn't care for the author's teaching style. I gave up Java for some time due to the lack of time between work, family and church; however, late last year I got the bug again and since I didn't like the previous book I purchased the "Murach's Java SE 6: Training & Reference" & "Murach's Java Servlets and JSP, 2nd Edition". I like their style and although I am not going to call myself an expert, I feel comfortable writing code and understanding other people's code when I browse the various forums. I also downloaded the "Thinking in Java (Fourth Edition)" and after reading some of it I found it to be good as well. I guess if I were to suggest a book[s], these would be my suggestions:

    Murach's Java SE6: Training & Reference
    Murach's Java Servlets and JSP, 2nd Edition
    Thinking in Java (Fourth Edition)

    Hope this helps. Good luck to you!

    According to me "Java :How to Program" By Deitel and Deitel is the best.
    other than that you can try on "Java Proram Solutions" by Lewis and Loftus.
    other then Shildt is also a good refrence book.
