Run to the SUN's Java Tutorial, that's really the best place to begin. You can either read on-line, or download the whole stuff. What is great is that the examples are directly illustrated by applets. What is also great is that this is free! :-)

You will also have to download the Java Development Kit, in order to write your own programs.
For this, go to JavaSoft: http://www.javasoft.com.

When you become more familiar with the language, I really recommend you JavaWorld. You have there each month plenty of interesting articles for Java programmers:

If you want to write a program/applet, but don't know where to begin, take a look at Gamelan. This is a repository of programs/applets, most of the time with Java source code.

Studying the code of others can also make you learn a lot.
