Seaching for Java study guide on DVD...

Does anyone know where I can purchase online a comprehensive study guide for Java on "DVD"?

I have been searching for a Java Tutorial on "DVD" format.  But have had no luck.

Request a URL or information where I may obtain such a source for learning Java on DVD.

Who is Participating?
I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would highly recommend subscribing to the Sun One Starter Kit.

You get quarterly updates of almost the complete Javasoft site, including the Java Tutorial.

$19.95 for a one off, $49.95 for a years subscription.

Thanks, I checked out the site...

What are your experiences with the Sun One Starter Kit?  The DVD looked more like a marketing tool for Sun's Open Net Environment (Sun ONE) and other Java products rather than a dedicated tutorial for learning Java, JavaBeans, JDBC, JSP, etc.  

Have you purchased the DVD?  Does your recommendation come from personal experience?  Forgive the questions...I just don't want to purchase any material that is too biased, too determined to sell a product, anything packed with 60 day trial software, etc.  Please advise.

Sorry for the late response.  I've had two days of not being able to resolve the EE URL :-(

I suppose some of it could be described as advertising, but basically the DVD is a (limited) mirror of the javasoft site.

It contains most of the downloads for the different Java platforms (JavaCard => J2EE), tutorials, white papers, etc.  There are also audiocasts (recordings of some of the presentations from Java One).

I speak from personal experience ;-)  I've subscribed to this for about 3 years now.  Until recently, I found it essential because I didn't have ADSL, so access to the latest JDK etc. on a DVD was very important.

Here is the expanded table of contents from the March 2003 DVD (I don't know how many of these items are limited, maily because there's so much, I haven't looked at it all ;-))  Everything in the list is available from the javasoft site in the same form (eg. if it is trial version on the site, then it will be a trial version on the DVD).
