Simple Question Where should I go as a beginner Java Programmer?  I want to learn Java and I know Perl.  I don't have the money for classes and I get stuck on chapters in books.  Can everyone help me find the best sites, books, and the best ways to learn Java?  The points are low because when I get enough information it will not cost much for others to read it.

The best site I have found is sun's site. I have yet to see better tutorials. Go to and follow the links to 'read about java' and 'tutorials'. More specifically use the link:

I am not upset. But a suggestion would be to have mentioned that before, otherwise someone could have possibly been upset.

I have seen other tutorials, but this is the best (in my view). If you want links to as many tutorials there are, let me know.

As far as tutorial go, vsinha's answer is correct.

For articles and How do I's, I would suggest you look at:
