Hey all,

I am trying to find some good learning material for some colleges. Primarily they are c++ programmer and they have to learn how to use some new applications I have wrote using Java Server Faces.

I have a tutorial on JSF/JSP for them however I don’t really want to write a Java tutorial as well (way to much work)

So just wanted to know if anyone knows of some good core Java Books? or Learning Videos really want one of those Java for C++ developers books as they don’t need to learn the basics of programming just the specifics of the java language

Any recommendations for learning material ??
