Hi!,

My company is looking to move into the Java arena, but like most new environments we have no clear idea as to what are the best tools to use and books to buy to learn the language.

We all have C, C++ and MFC knowledge and have used IDEs in some shape or form.

Any personal experiences, references or articles would be much appreciated.

You'll probably find lots of varying opinions regarding which is the best. Personally I think it comes down to personal preference.

Well I wish I could split the points between you guys because all of your answers have been really helpful.  Objects, I award the points to your useful reference.

But can someone also give me a good list of books that teach Java well or recommend some good titles.

Thanks.

Thanks for the points.

Not too sure on books, but Sun's Java Tutorial is a pretty good reference while you're learning. I have previously heard that the following is a good book:
Teach Yourself Java in 21 Days
by Laura Lemay and Charles L. Perkins

But if you know C++ then it's not too big a step to Java.

Best of luck :)
