I need a good Java book. By good,I mean which starts from the ground up and assumes some knowledge of Object Oriented Programming". Not too much of dabbling in graphics though. Must be lucid .

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Depends what you want. The reason i recommended TIJ is that it's not only good - it's available free. If you're serious about Java, you'll probably not want to be without
