Where do I find a very simple tutorial for Java programming.

A tutorial where I can start from creating a form, buttons, clicking on a button, changing an image, and simple things like that.

I do not want java scripts, I am looking for JAVA tutorials for very basic things as creating interfaces, programming a little bit and so on.

Thank you.

Nice examples all... some are complicated for me at this time.

Now one more thing:

I always run this programs from the Command Prompt, and that is annoying... I do not want to see the DOS window open  
aways.

I would like to know if is it possible to some how run the program in a way that any other program will run in a computer, I mean with out any other window open, but the program it self.

I always advise learning to walk before you run.  A good editor is what you need to get started with java so that you can learn the fundamentals, then learn the IDEs.  Something like TextPad, JEdit and there are many more are more suited to just consentrating on the language (and typing it in).  I prefer Eclipse as my main programming tool, but still fall-back on TextPad for many things.    

But seriously, if you want to learn how to program GUIs in java stay away from the RAD tools until you know how to do it yourself.  It will help you when you have to fix the gui, debug, update, maintain someone else's, fix the IDEs mistakes, desire a redesign, and whatever else.  

It is like cooking.  The simple "add water" package mix will never taste as well as some good "ol' fashion" home cookin will.  Take the time.

I highly recommend the Eclipse IDE - you don't need to fuss with DOS, etc.  http://www.eclipse.org

But, as others have noted, it is often better to start with a simple text editor to really be forced to learn the language fundamentals.
