There is not really a comparision because VB is object based (not purely object oriented) and Java is object oriented. There are a lot of things that you could not do in VB, but you can do that in Java, so there need not always be a VB equivalent for what you are doing. Have a look at the basic Java tutorial to start with:

I would reccomend the Head First Java Book. It gives you a good "from the ground" view of the Java language and is written in an easy to understand way.
Suns documentation may be free, but is in my opinon not meant for the novice.

I would also recommend to look at http://www.javaranch.com which is from one of the authors.
They have a very good section with books about Java. It's also a good way to look at the forums on that page.

The author is also responsiible for Suns Java Certification Program.
